The Public Outreach Committee again hosted several outreach-themed events at the 2014 Experimental Biology meeting, held in San Diego, CA.
The committee sponsored an outreach-themed poster session that featured presentations from several different programs and individuals.
The committee also held a science communication workshop. Titled “You Can’t Say That on Television (or to Congress, or to students)," the workshop focused on helping attendees learn how to communicate their science to a variety of different audiences.
Finally, the committee partnered with the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center to host a science cafe, "Game Changer: How a Computer Game Can Turn You Into a Real-Life Hero." Presented by University of Washington student Brian Koepnick, the cafe provided a hands-on introduction to the science-themed video game FoldIt.
