    • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    • Royal BC Museum

    As part of Science Literacy Week the Science Writers and Communicators of Canada (SWCC) and the Royal BC Museum join forces for a dynamic evening discovering the myriad ways to effectively communicate the relevance of science.

    From the powerful written language in a book or text panel in a museum to multimedia exhibitions, how the concepts of science are crafted makes all the difference in making an authentic and meaningful impact on an audience. 

    The evening will feature local innovators in science communication—with talks from Science Borealis and Curiosity Collider—plus the SWCC book award 2017 presentation to Mark Leiren-Young for his book The Killer Whale Who Changed the World
