These three fields are distinct entities, with their own training, traditions, audiences and goals, but must they be as separate as they are? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each field and what can we learn from each other? With a shared goal of encouraging scientific understanding and literacy, we'll explore the ways teachers, science writers, museum educators and more can work together.
- "What do you think holds back collaborations between teachers, science writers, museum educators and others interested in science outreach and education?"
- "What examples have you seen or experienced working across boundaries in formal science education, informal science education and science writing?"
- "What would be effective tools/methods to use to foster collaboration between different groups interested in scientific outreach?"
