Public Understanding of Science and Science Education


In August, I participated in a panel discussion hosted by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund in North Carolina. To purpose of the event was to share with science education directors ways they can contribute to the public understanding of science and science education. The discussion was moderated by Russ Campbell, BWF Communications Director (and fellow Philadelphian–yo, Russ!).

Here are the presentations of the three panelists, in this order:

  • Darlene Cavalier, Science Cheerleader
  • Glenn Murphy, author of “Why is Snot Green”
  • Troy Livingston, Museum of Life and Science

Hope you enjoy it. Tell us what you would add!
