UWA Science Communication Friday Seminar

    What do school field trips and fish welfare have in common?

They are both the subjects of science communication research. At this weeks'
seminar PhD students Sophia Bickford and Miriam Sullivan will present their
research proposals.

    Maximising benefits of field trips and guest speakers in secondary science
    education- Sophia Bickford

    This research is motivated by a desire to help schools and informal science
    institutions maximise the educational benefit of their collaboration. It
    will involve case studies of Scitech and the Department of Environment and
    Conservation programs, as well as a statewide survey of science teachers.

    The welfare of aquarium fish: Current issues, possible solutions and public
    implementation- Miriam Sullivan

    How should scientists be communicating animal welfare issues? This research
    project uses aquarium fish as a case study to examine the different
    interpretations of animal welfare and if nature documentaries are really an
    effective science communcation tool.
