In the era of fake news and alternative facts, science communication is in a more precarious position than ever before. What is causing the communication gap between scientists and the general public? Science in the News Co-Director Katie Wu discusses how to effectively and accurately convey scientific progress to all audiences and avoid obscurity within the black hole of Internet click bait.

Learn the different ways in which scientists can better engage their audiences, the ups and downs of communicating across professions, and how everyone can each sleuth their way to scientific discovery.
