Three outstanding women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) will be looking at the benefits and drawbacks of various forms of science communication – teaching, reporting, and working at science outreach centres.
Three 15 minute talks will be followed by a Q & A and a chance to talk with the speakers after their presentations!
