Science Online NYC (SoNYC) 7 – Matching medium and messengers to meet the masses

On Thursday evening, we hosted the seventh installment of the monthly Science Online NYC (SoNYC) discussion series. The topic for debate this month was, “Matching medium and messengers to meet the masses” and the panel featured:

  • Darlene Cavalier is the woman behind the Science Cheerleaders.
  • Jamie Vernon, a science policy analyst.
  • Molly Webster, lead producer for live programming at the World Science Festival.
  • Kevin Zelnio is Assistant Editor and Webmaster for Deep Sea News and a freelance writer.

As is our usual format, following short introductory talks from the panelists, we invited attendees present in person atRockefellerUniversityor watching online to take part in a wider discussion.
