What is “anti-science”? Is it the local astrologer or crystal healer or is it a general attitude alive and well in universities, the media and government departments? The time is ripe for scientists and science communicators to stop pointing the finger at an ‘ignorant’ public and take a look in the mirror.

What is “anti-science”? Is it the local astrologer or crystal healer or is it a general attitude alive and well in universities, the media and government departments? The time is ripe for scientists and science communicators to stop pointing the finger at an ‘ignorant’ public and take a look in the mirror. Do we need to reassess the way we teach science to students or communicate science to the public? In this workshop, a panel of science communicators from Australia and overseas will offer their insights and the audience will be encouraged to participate in what promises to be a stimulating session.
