Communicating Scientific Discovery To The Masses

Scientists are receiving instruction on how to better communicate their findings with the public.

Today on Vermont Edition, they’ll be talking about communicating science to the general public:

Alan Alda spoke at UVM last week to address a subject about which he is quite passionate: teaching scientists to communicate their findings with the general public. His speech came at a time when the Center for Communicating Science, that bears his name at Stony Brook University, was announcing a working relationship with UVM.

The Center’s Director Elizabeth Bass and UVM Vice President for Research Richard Galbraith discuss the need for this type of instruction, the partnership and what both schools hope to accomplish.

 

Listen at noon and 7pm.
