Title: Communicating Science: From the Cutting Edge to Your Doorstep
Founding fathers of our independent nation had envisioned science and technology as vehicles for bringing about economic emancipation and social equity. They sought to inculcate a scientific temper among the masses. Imaginative science communicators can play a key role in changing public attitudes towards science. The talk will analyse the existing challenges and address effective means of enhancing public understanding of science.
