What kind of truth is science and how do scientists get it out there?
Ever since man created science there has been misunderstanding, confusion and plain old fear-mongering from non-scientists. Siouxsie Wiles – head of the Bioluminescent Superbugs Lab at the University of Auckland – is a science broadcaster and blogger and winner of who has won the NZ Association of Scientists Science Communication Award (2012) and the Prime Minister's Science Media Communication Prize (2013). In discussion with NZ Herald science reporter Jamie Morton she will explain why scientists need to make their work easily understood and some of the challenges in getting the truth out there.
