How the Secrets of Science-writing Can Improve Science Teaching (217)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Drawing on the experience of a magazine editor, a science journalist and a science teacher who writes professionally, this session will give you the benefit of three perspectives on science writing and reveal how media professionals create compelling science stories. Learn how to engage people with science, spark their curiosity and keep them coming back for more. Discover how editors choose and package stories, get tips from a journalist and author on how to hone your own writing, and share in the experience of a teacher who has developed science writing as part of her career.
