Beyond the Lab: Workshop Hosted by Top Media Publication & Alan Alda’s Center Transforms Scientists and Engineers into Storytellers

Scientific American and the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University are teaming up for a free online workshop aimed at helping scientists and engineers write blogs and op-eds for magazines, newspapers and other news outlets. Presented in partnership with The Kavli Foundation, two dozen scientists will receive mentoring on writing this fall and next spring, with successful assignments to be considered for publication as a Scientific American guest blog. The program will culminate with a special gathering in New York City in fall 2018, where course participants will network with instructors, science communication experts and peers as well as staff from the Alda Center and Scientific American.
