Storify of the 2012 Science Communication Conference Day 2 #scicom12

Tuesday saw the second day of the annual two-day Science Communication Conference organised by the British Science Association in association with the Wellcome Trust.

The conference aims to address the key issues facing science communicators in the UK, bringing together people involved in public engagement.

This year’s theme is ‘Impact‘ with the conversations focusing on the various ways to measure public engagement activities, as well as how research scientists and engineers will consider the impact agenda of their research.

Day 2 included an interesting plenary session on whether science communication can benefit from national initiatives like Olympics 2012, a controversial simulated heart attack on stage, as well as the singing delight, Helen Arney: Voice of an angle (spelling intended).

Below you can find the Storify for online conversation from Day 2, you can also check out the Storify of Day 1 here.
