FREE EVENT

In this chaotic and saturated 21st century media landscape, every citizen needs the skills of a well-trained journalist to be both a better consumer of media and a more responsible creator of media. Discover how to evaluate science-related journalism in traditional and social media at our next Café Sci event.

On June 4, join Broadcast Journalist Gina Catanzarite as she evaluates the science of good journalism in relation to following the same systematic steps of the scientific method! From literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking to tracing data back to its point of origin, Catanzarite will educate guests to not hit “click-like-share” until you've analyzed the empirical or measurable evidence presented in a story.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
