Last week, AAAS CEO Rush Holt participated in an online live chat, where he discussed how AAAS is being a force for science, why we have partnered with the March for Science and the role of science in this era of “alternative-facts.”
Please join the next AAAS live chat this Wednesday at 1pm EDT, where a group of science communication experts will explain why it’s important that scientists engage the public on science, how to engage local, national and international policymakers, and answer any of your other questions related to science communication.
The panel will include:
- Emily Therese Cloyd, AAAS
- Shane Hanlon, American Geophysical Union (AGU)
- Melissa Kenney, University of Maryland (AAAS Leshner Leadership Institute Public Engagement Fellow)
- Karen Lips, University of Maryland (AAAS Leshner Leadership Institute Public Engagement Fellow)
The live chat will begin at 1 p.m. EDT on the AAAS Facebook and Twitter accounts. Feel free to post questions in advance with the following hashtag on Twitter: #AAASLive.
