Project DEMO: SciArt Exchange offers multi-disciplinary art contests, artwork events, consulting, training and community resources to support science and technology education, collaboration, and innovation. Using a science-integrated- with-art approach, SciArt Exchange supports, prepares, and convenes people of all ages, backgrounds and affiliations to discuss and potentially solve space, science, and technology challenges.

BIO: Dr. McPhee, a neuroscientist, created the multimedia, international Humans in Space Art Program to encourage people of all ages (youth, young adults, and professionals), cultures, and backgrounds to think about and creatively communicate their visions of the future of human space exploration through visual, literary, musical, and video art. So far, the Program has engaged over 9000 artists from 60 countries as participants, and over 3 million people have viewed the multimedia artwork displays and performances online, locally on Earth, and in space. Since 2010, she has been implementing motivating and novel ways to enhance space education and science and technology innovation and to promote global collaboration in human space exploration.
