Title: SPREAD THE WORD. The do's and dont's of science popularisation
Date: 19-06-2008
Start: 16.00
Location: FWN-Building 5111.0080

Abstract

Physics is a tough topic. Not just for physicists, but even more so for the
layman. So how do you communicate your results with the public at large -
with the tax payers who enable your research in the first place? What are
the main opportunities and pitfalls of successful science communication? And
what is the role of news media in the process? In this colloquium, freelance
astronomy writer Govert Schilling shares his views and provides you with a
fresh look at your own work.
