Amplify: Conversations about Science CommunicationOn Feb. 24, the College of the Environment will hold the next Amplify event, a series of conversations built around the topic of science communication. Join us for light refreshments and wine as we explore building academic partnerships with the private sector. Increasingly we see that new perspectives from outside of the academy can shape research questions, bring new resources, and lead to more robust outcomes that can result in broader applications of research findings. We will discuss how these partnerships and collaborations are formed, and the value they bring to our work.

Moderated by Tom DeLuca, Director of the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, our panelists will be Joe Casola, Deputy Director of the Climate Impacts Group; Terrie Klinger, Professor and Director of the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs, co-Director of the Washington Ocean Acidification Center; and John Vidale, Professor of Earth and Space Sciences, Director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, Washington State Seismologist.

Please RSVP to join us in the Vista Cafe at 5:00 p.m. for this round of Amplify!

About Amplify

Amplify is a series of conversations among faculty, staff, postdocs and graduate students who want to explore and engage in science communication and outreach. Bringing together individuals from the College of the Environment and around UW, our goals are to create an opportunity to consider and challenge ideas in science communication, outreach and engagement; to learn how others are addressing issues in these arenas; and to amplify conversations about science in order to better serve society.

Hosted by the College of the Environment, Amplify begins with conversations over a glass of wine and a bite to eat, leading to a rapid and informative panel featuring three to five faculty with diverse opinions, experience, or expertise on the topic of the night. The evening ends with another opportunity for casual interactions with the panelists and other attendees.
