In this session Veronika Nuñez, Géraldine Delaforge and Amparo Leyman Pino present a wide variety of approaches on designing exhibits, programs, and curriculum for everyone. In order to aim equity we need to erase the barriers and create learning experiences including everyone from the beginning. Our approach is all or no one, meaning, if the program will exclude a group either by motor disabilities, or hearing impairment, we need to redesign until all are able to participate. This approach takes into account language, gender, culture, physical, and mental abilities, learning styles, and visual and hearing impairments. Spoiler alert: this presentation reflects the content of Amparo’s chapter Breaking the Silos, Science Communication for Everyone
