About the Event
Many people feel that they cannot engage with scientific concepts. However, a working knowledge of biology is increasingly critical as we grapple with big questions regarding topics such as ethics and regulation of genetic technology, conservation, and health. Biology Everywhere: How the Science of Life Matters to Everyday Life bridges the gap between the biology classroom and practical application of biological concepts to daily life. Biology Everywhere includes subjects typically covered in an introductory biology class like ecology and genetics, and also unique interdisciplinary topics such as the relationship between arts and biology. In my talk, I’ll discuss the Biology Everywhere philosophy, or teaching biology in an application-based and interdisciplinary manner to empower the general public to engage with science and biology. I’ll close with a discussion of best practices for communicating across disciplinary boundaries and applications of these practices when communicating with the general public and other scientists.
