Tim Blais is the creator of A Capella Science, an educational and utterly nerdy musical learning experience. A former physics researcher and lifelong harmony aficionado, Tim draws inspiration from Weird Al, Bill Nye, Mike Tompkins and Vi Hart. He uses sounds from his mouth, throat and vocal cords to produce the phenomenon that is A Capella Science! Weaving dense research fields into lyric and melody, Tim's video creations have covered such topics as CRISPR gene editing, molecular robotics, string theory, evolutionary development biology, and the arrow of time. His videos have been viewed over 30 million times and are often used to supplement high school and university lessons.
Tim has spoken and performed at numerous conferences such as SynBioBeta and Canada-Wide Science Fair, universities such as University of Oslo and KAUST, research institutes such as Europe's CERN Laboratories, and numerous online events. He speaks and performs with an eye toward engaging technical audiences with their creative sides, opening up their perspective on STEM engagement and promotion by teaching them to sing, improvising from suggestions, and breaking down the process of art creation.

The California Science Education Conference, hosted by the California Association of Science Educators (CASE), is the pre-eminent science education event held annually for educators from throughout California. Drawing more than 1,000 attendees, the goal of the annual gathering is to develop an educational space for professional learning, deepening connections, fostering creativity, generating new ideas and energizing science educators to build excitement and enthusiasm for science education inside and out of the classroom.
This year, we are thrilled to return to an in-person event that will offer an inspiring, fun-filled educational event for all involved. This includes the details of a Partner Program that will provide your company with maximum amount of return on your investment for your participation this year.
We can't wait for you to connect with California Educators!
The 2022 CASE Science Conference aims to answer the National Academies' Call to Action for Science Education for better, more equitable science education. The Calls' vision, and ours, is that every student experiences the joy and wonder of science, learns how science can be used to solve local and global problems, sees the pathways they can take into science-related careers, and feels welcomed and valued in science classrooms.
We have an opportunity to reset science education so that it is better for all Californians and more equitable for populations of students from rural communities and those of color who are experiencing poverty.
Join us on this urgent call.
