Skype a Scientist has over 2,150 member scientists.

“WISE found Futurum really easy to work with – they asked insightful questions around our programmes and created a feature that was visually engaging and easy to read for the target audience. We are confident that this will raise the profile of our programme following publication.”

“Working with Karen [at Futurum] was an absolutely amazing experience because, for the first time of my career I had the opportunity to make science accessible to children and teenagers. This is new for me because I work with predominately older students at Doane University (age 18-22). I also really enjoyed sharing my personal experience from my childhood and what inspired me to become a professor of chemistry. I think younger students will appreciate that I had bad grades and nearly didn’t graduate from high-school, but I still was able to climb up the career ladder. I hope that encourages young students to prevail and not give up. It didn’t take me long to review the materials – perhaps a few hours – but the time didn’t matter to me. I didn’t keep track because it was fun and not work.”

“Futurum sets up our future so very well in how it networks and reaches out. I am very impressed with the engaging graphics, electric ideas exchange, and extremely committed knowledge mobilization team. Getting to know Karen and Brett, as company leads who take a personalized approach, created such an enjoyable working experience. The opportunity to bring the benefit of science to students, and to potentially light up some STEAM career ideas, especially in those areas where ‘soft skills’ like empathy, interpersonal awareness, social skills count so much, is phenomenal. I am hopeful that these young leaders will open their hearts and minds to exciting helping professions, as well as be a part of the research to action to wellness cycle!”

“Working with the staff at Futurum was a wonderful experience. From the genuine interest in the association and thoughtful questions, to the beautiful layout and attention to detail, Futurum’s personalized approach yielded an article that was both visually appealing and informative. We were beyond grateful for the opportunity to talk about our journal, Connected Science Learning, and the importance of informal learning experiences in promoting quality science learning for preK-12 students and beyond.”
