Part 3: “Smithsonian Teachers Night” is an annual event designed to celebrate education and to strengthen bonds between local audiences and Smithsonian experts. In an attempt to scale up this experience by connecting experts with collections, and making those connections visible and interactive, SCEMS developed a series of online interactive education conferences examining one topic through the diverse historical, artistic, cultural, and scientific collections and expertise residing within the Smithsonian. These conferences provide a unique perspective on topics such as Abraham Lincoln (examining not only history, but artistic interpretations, and scientific explorations that defined this period), but also provide an opportunity for new communities within the Smithsonian to form, for example, bridging together the often-segregated professional worlds of art and science. These new communities proved to be a powerful draw as they connected with communities of interest, students and the general public, from more than 100 counties participating.
