On a national stage, our city might quickly be associated with education and medicine (the ubiquitous “eds and meds”) but, all across Philly labs and research centers, scientists tackle a wide range of areas: from social behavior to outer space.
Start Talking Science, the yearly science communications event is looking to provide an avenue for that research to be highlighted. Happening Sept. 27 at the Science History Institute (fka Chemical Heritage Foundation), the event will gather 30 peer-reviewed talks and expects about 200 attendees.
The deadline to pitch your STEM presentation is May 18.
“Start Talking Science is a great opportunity to get out of the lab and into the streets,” said Marion Leary, part of the volunteer group of researchers and scientists putting the event together. “We firmly believe scientists have a responsibility to communicate their research to the public, as their observations can have social implications that are integral to the improvement of human health and the advancement of society.”

For Leary, founder of the now-shelved ImmERge Labs, increased interaction between scientists and the public can help to make science more accessible and make support for science an easier lift.
“This is an opportunity for researchers and scientists to present their work in a less academic forum to the general public and students,” Leary said.-30-
