Science Through the Lens: A Digital Journalism Partnership of NSF and NBC News

Sunday, February 21, 2010: 2:00 PM-3:30 PM
Room 5B (San Diego Convention Center)
For the first time, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and NBC News are partnering to offer specialized instruction for scientists and engineers in the use of hand-held camera technology and techniques. Participants will emerge with enhanced expertise in the communication of science research. Knowledge of digital journalism is significant because journalists are storytellers who sift through information and make the crucial distinction between fact and opinion. By integrating audio and video into their stories, journalists enhance the depth, impact, and credibility of news. In some cases, entire narratives can be explored, and entire worlds accessed, with only the use of audio and visual cues. This workshop will equip scientists and engineers with similar skills to share their research in an effective and compelling manner.
