AWIS LA/VC + Aquarium of the Pacific Workshop
Communicating Science to the World: The Nature and Practices of ScienceEffective science communication is sometimes challenging because of differences in understanding (or differences in opinion) of what science is and how it works. Recognizing and understanding the spectrum of ideas on the nature and practices of science (how we do science/ how science works as an enterprise) can help science communicators like us interpret their own work to the lay public.

WHERE: 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802
WHEN: Sunday, April 7th 2013, 2 pm
WHY:Join us at the AWIS-Aquarium of the Pacific workshop to explore the nature and practices of science through hands-on activities and discussion.
