How has 25 years of science communication created new relationships between scientific research, the societies that support this research, and the cultures in which is it embedded? How do we communicate the difficult science - like quantum computing, cancer research or synthetic biology? Can science communication spur us to action instead of despair about climate change?
Paul Barclay will lead three guests in a lively discussion on these and other challenges of science communication: Copenhagen's Professor Maja Horst, Eureka-winner Dr Darren Saunders, and former ASC President Professor Joan Leach.
The event celebrates the 25th anniversary of the founding of Australian Science Communicators, and is supported by EQUS - An ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems, the Australian Academy of Science, and the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at the ANU.
Wine and nibbles will be served, and the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions. Please note, tickets are strictly limited due to venue capacity.
