Science Communication Week at the Intersection

By Chris Mooney | November 14, 2010 4:38 pm

I wasn’t a very good blogger last week–for which I am very sorry.

However, I will be more than making up for it in the coming week (and giving Sheril a break), as I’m going to be unveiling a considerable amount of new and in some cases experimental content–all organized around the theme of communicating science to broader audiences.

First off, this is the week when the images from the new Rock Stars of Science™ campaign are going public in GQ magazine’s blockbuster “Men of the Year” issue. So stand by for a roll-out of that, starting with a retrospective on the scientists who participated in 2009 and what the experience was like for them.

And second, on Wednesday and Thursday I’m one of three trainers at this National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop on science communication at George Washington University. It’s entitled “Science: Becoming the Messenger,” and little do they know it yet, but I have a suspicion that you may hear from some workshop participants right here on the blog!

There may be other sci comm news as well…but already, that’s a lot. So stand by….
