Please join us for our next #SciEngage discussion on FRIDAY, JANUARY 22 from 12 – 1 PM ET (5 – 6 GMT). In this conversation, we will reflect on our engagement experiences during COVID-19 and explore lessons learned and unexpected opportunities for developing meaningful public engagement practices.
One of Marques’ goals from the beginning of the AAAS Leshner Public Engagement Fellowship year was to better understand what human augmentation means to most people, and how he and his colleagues could increase interest in this topic and support broader engagement with it. Marques is part of the 2019-20 class of AAAS Leshner Public Engagement Fellows, whose scientific and public engagement work connects to the topic of human augmentation. These researchers come from a diverse range of disciplines, but they are all interested in technologies that temporarily or permanently change the capabilities of the human body. Their work varies widely, from assistive technologies and wearable sensors to tattooing and antibiotics.
