What You'll Learn

Expect the workshop to stimulate your mind, sharpen your skills, spark your creativity and expand your professional community. The comprehensive, structured and lively lectures and discussions—15 to 20 sessions in all—are led by:

  • Scientists in fields ranging from physics to genetics.
  • Science reporters and editors from a variety of media.
  • Experts in law, ethics, statistics and research.
  • Exceptionally creative radio producers.

You’ll develop additional insight from constructive critiques of your work, a field trip to a research facility, support materials on this website, and two follow-up teleconferences.

By the end of the six days you’ll have sharpened your skills, your capacity to probe emerging scientific issues and your ability to transform your findings into a
compelling production. Whether you’re covering stories from a local or global
perspective, you will enjoy greater confidence in your science reporting.
