Science communication is an often overlooked, almost ignored, aspect of scientific training, and to be an effective scientist, we must be effective communicators.
As an expansion from Athens Science Café, myself and others helped established a student organization, The Athens Science Observer, which focuses on the development of science communication skills at the graduate and undergraduate level.
Members of ASO write journalistic articles, news pieces, advise columns, and blogs each conveying scientific information in a style digestible to non-scientsits. To date, this organization has a membership of 43 students in Athens, GA and abroad, and has comprised well over 130 freely available pieces.
Rishi R. Masalia currently serves as Editor in Chief and Advise Column Editor for this organization. For a full list of ASO contributors, click here.
