#SciEngage Virtual Discussion (August): NPR SciCommers


On Friday August 16th at 12 PM EDT, join us for our monthly #SciEngage discussion as we hear from NPR Science correspondent Joe Palca, one of the organizers of NPR Scicommers (formally known as Friends of Joe's Big Idea).

NPR Scicommers is a community of scientists and engineers interested in improving their science communication skills. Having interacted with many scientists and engineers who wanted to become better communicators, Joe started the group in 2012 in an effort to tell stories about the processes of science and invention. Joe will share his experiences working with NPR Scicommers and describe some of the current initiatives that help individual Scicommers become better connected with each other, develop science communication related skills, and provide advice on career development.

Videos of this and all past #SciEngage webinars are located on this YouTube playlist.
