STEP Forward - training postdocs in science communication

IAS faculty member Becca Price, along with Salwa Al-Noori and Eva Ma from the School of STEM and Kelly Snyder Assistant Vice Chancellor for Government & Community, hosted an event at which postdoctoral scholars shared interactive exhibits about cutting-edge science with business leaders and local legislators. Through a partnership with Pacific Science Center, the postdoctoral scholars have been participating in a program that moves evidence-based teaching practices from the classroom into informal science education settings. Their exhibits included topics ranging from spine function, to using fruit flies in the lab, to designing medicine.
