Al Jazeera discussion of science communication and social media

By Grant Jacobs 11/06/2015


Tonight I stumbled upon a discussion of science communication on Al Jazeera’s The Stream program, taking in social media, science communication tactics and issues, pulling in the non-science audience (as opposed to preaching to the choir), and more.

If science communication isn’t your thing, watch it anyway for the short live demonstrations!

Once past the short introductory bit there’s discussion and demos with Steve Spangler (of Sick Science!), Derek Muller (Veritasium), Stephanie Smith and Veronica McGregor (both from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory).

You can watch it for yourself below:

More discussion can be seen on the Al Jazeera page for the episode.

Twitters users can use the #ScienceStream hashtag to ask the science communication people on the show questions. (Click ‘Live’ to see live stream.)

Great to see a major television channel spend time covering science communication. More please!
