901 Seminar - Communicating Chemistry to the General Public
As a scientist, you will be increasingly expected to communicate your research not only to fellow scientists but also to the general lay public. In addition to being an opportunity to share the joy of discovery that is often lost in the public discussion of science, such communication is also important for a number of other reasons. You will be helping to teach non-scientists about science and its influence on their lives. And you will be providing citizens with science that will better equip them to fully and knowingly participate in the public policy debates that today so often involve complex science and includes discourse on everything from climate change to stem cells.
