2016 NCSCE Washington Symposium: The Ecosystem of Science Communication: Communicating the Science Solution

Eliza Reilly Ecosystem of Science Communication

This meeting convened experts in science communication to help educators in high schools, colleges, universities, non-profit organizations, public media, libraries, museums, and other informal education institutions better understand the conflicts between scientific knowledge and personal or political identity, and how to successfully navigate these issues.

In addition to specialists in the NCSCE community who delivered on this topic, we had sessions from partners including Yale University’s Center for Cultural Cognition, the Alan Alda Center for Science Communication, Tangled Bank Studios, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science to share their expertise with meeting participants. Veteran and new members of the NCSCE community also displayed posters highlighting their institutions’ work in science and civic engagement.
