Mind the Science Gap is a science blog with a difference. For ten weeks between January and April 2012, ten Masters of Public Health students from the University of Michigan will each be posting weekly blogs as they learn how to translate complex science into something a broad audience can understand and appreciate.
Course leader Andrew Maynard (of 2020 Science fame) has asked me to pop by a couple of times each week to comment on the posts from the students who will take a recent scientific publication or emerging area of scientific interest and write a blog post on it aimed at a non-expert and non-technical audience. You are also encouraged to pitch in with your thoughts and criticisms of the writing too. You can find me on the MtSG mentors page.
Mind the Science Gap | Ten students. Ten weeks. One hundred science blogs.
