Research Study Group – Outreach/Science Communication

November 27, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

For this month’s RSG, we will discuss the timely and important topic of scientific outreach, communication, and advocacy. As recipients of tax payer-funded federal research dollars, and an aggressive climate where trust in the scientific community is at risk, it is important that scientists are able to engage in our community.

We have three excellent panelists joining us to discuss these issues, who have a strong passion for connecting with their community:

Sarah Windsor, director of STEM in the Park, who leads a program that seeks to inspire K-12 students who are girls and underrepresented minorities to become scientists.

Katie Stember, who founded and runs the Scientists of North Carolina Facebook page, which profiles local scientists in the greater Triangle area.

Jory Weinstraub, who is part of the leadership staff of Duke Science & Society, who produce Periodic Tables, a monthly puclic series held at Motorco in Durham that explores various relevant topics of science and politics.

I hope you all can join us!
