This Week in Science Communication

Three things from the science communication interwebs we're pretty sure you'll love.

1. Pairing comedians with climate scientists can open doors and introduce new audiences to the topic of climate change.

A new comedy project pairing leading comedians with climate scientists offers a new way to communicate the climate crisis. Think we’re joking? Climate media expert Mark Maslin  teamed up with British comedian Jo Brand to translate his science, and it landed him a spot on national breakfast television. Read about it here.


2. New research shows what the public really wants to know about gene editing in animals.

When it comes to gene editing, science communication is as important as ever, but research shows the questions being answered on stakeholders’ FAQ pages are not the ones the public are asking. Read the research results here


3. Choosing the best images for your conference poster doesn’t have to be complicated.

Animate Your Science has a helpful guide to ensure your next conference poster is accessible, accurate and aesthetic. Check it out here.
