Science for the People
November 2, 2020: Science Communication in Creative Places
When you think of science communication, you might think of TED talks or museum talks or video talks, or… people giving lectures. It’s a lot of people talking. But there’s more to sci comm than that. This week host Bethany Brookshire talks to three people who have looked at science communication in places you might not expect it. We’ll speak with Mauna Dasari, a graduate student at Notre Dame, about making mammals into a March Madness match. We’ll talk with Sarah Garner, director of the Pathologists Assistant Program at Tulane University School of Medicine, who takes pathology instruction out of the lab and on to Instagram, @passion4pathology, complete with dissections. And we’ll hear from Vaughan James, a graduate student at the University of Florida, who decided to find out if hearing about science at a science fiction convention actually, well, made people like science any more.
