Hello and welcome to The Athens Science Observer!
We are a volunteer, student run science communication community dedicated to public engagement in scientific research and education. Our work is twofold, first we train students, both undergraduate and graduate, on how to communicate science effectively. We do this through experiential learning, as well as by promoting and sponsoring workshops, and group meetings. Second, our website provides a platform for our communicators to present their pieces, while our advertising partnership with the Athens Science Café, facilitates active engagement of these pieces with the public.
We are always looking to make The Athens Science Observer better, and we’d love to hear from you. If you have inquiries, or would like to become a writer, please contact us!
