Science Communication at MIT

The MIT Museum is a place where all visitors are invited to discover the technological and scientific advances developed by the MIT community. We're proud to be part of the Institute's broad efforts at increasing science literacy among the general public and improving science communication across all fields.

Here are just a few of the resources for science communication and science journalism at the MIT Museum and beyond.

John Durant, Mark R. Epstein (Class of 1963) Director, teaches STS.034 Science Communication: A Practical Guide. Read a New York Times profile of Durant and the role of events like the Cambridge Science Festival in engaging the curiosity of non-scientists.

The Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT, founded in 1983, seeks to nurture and enhance the ability of journalists from around the world to accurately document and illuminate the often complex intersection of science, technology and human culture. It does so through an acclaimed fellowship program and science-focused seminars.

Undark Magazine, an independent digital publication supported by the Knight Science Journalism Program explores science at the point where it intersects—and sometimes collides—with politics, economics and culture.
