Science and story: the write angle

Panel Discussion with Sean Carroll, Jo Marchant and Steven Pinker, part of the World Science Festival

Event details

Doing science? Hard work. Explaining the results to an interested but scientifically untrained public? Just as difficult. And just as important. Join a conversation with Sean Carroll, Jo Marchant, and Steven Pinker to discuss the responsibilities and challenges science writers face when leading the uninitiated into worlds filled with equations, data, minutiae, and long histories of incrementally compiled knowledge. What are the most effective and creative ways for making complex ideas compelling and accessible, without compromising their intellectual integrity? This program is supported by The Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books
