Science Communication Week, K-State

TechAccel is a proud sponsor of the 2nd Annual Science Communication Week, Nov. 5-10, at the Kansas State University.

Candace Seeve, Ph.D.,science advancement manager for TechAccel, will participate in the panel discussion “Considering CRISPR,” which will be held 9-10 am in the Bluemont Room of the Union at K-State. Gene-editing tools are revolutionizing biology, crop science, medicine, and more, but the science behind them is complicated. How can we communicate the promising capabilities of CRISPR without scaring public audiences?

The week’s events include a discussion of The Food Explorer, scientists and social media, using video and images to communicate complex ideas, and much more.
