In April 2016, Science Talk Northwest was born. It was the brainchild of a small group of science communication professionals who saw a need to gather others and help elevate science in the region.
The purpose of the organization was to bring together individuals passionate about science from the Pacific Northwest and share ideas about how science should be best communicated.
In July 2017, Science Talk Northwest went national and became Science Talk.
Each year we organize a conference where scientists, journalists, celebrities, politicians, students, and anyone who loves science can convene and share their expertise. This gathering offers networking opportunities, instructional workshops, and presentations on how to better communicate science to..."everyone."
Science is the lifeblood to good decision making. Therefore, how it is presented and understood is incredibly important to advancements in medicine, technology, infrastructure, or design.
Science Talk is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Volunteer board members oversee the day-to-day operations, guide future goals, coordinate events, and provide mentoring and training to younger members.
