About this event:
Each June, ScienceOnlineSeattle partners with the Seattle Science Festival to share and celebrate the tasty science and amazing community in our city!
Our 2013 kickoff event is June 10, highlighting The Best of UW Science Now
UW Science Now is a partnership between Town Hall Seattle, and Engage: The Science Speaker Series. Based at University of Washington, Engage is an innovative graduate student course that excels at training scientists to communicate their research to broader audiences. Each student caps their training by giving a public talk at Town Hall. Their work was featured in the Seattle Times this spring, and ScienceOnline is proud to support them by live-streaming and live-tweeting this ‘best-of’ special event!
