Saturday March 9th, Noon – 1:30
We, as scientists, educators, and inquisitive laymen, know that scientific findings can be infinitely informative, and intellectually satisfying. But that’s not how everyone perceives science. During this session learn how a panel of local writers, reporters, and artists use the story behind the science to impart meaning and relevance to scientific findings. Panel members include: author and UAA professor Nancy Lord, author and environmental educator Marilyn Sigman, Homer News editor and science-fiction author Michael Armstrong, K-12 educator Bill Noomah, and nationally acclaimed sculptor Rika Mouw. LUNCH IS INCLUDED! PLEASE PRE-REGISTER SO WE HAVE ENOUGH FOOD!
