Should “listening” be one of the skills we teach students?

It makes me think back to my New Year’s Resolution post for 2022, asking everyone to take climate action, and one way to do just this is to talk about climate. But it doesn’t help to have people talk about climate if no one is listening effectively!

Getting students to create their Climate Action Venn Diagram

There are so many calls for climate action, and these calls are increasing in volume and numbers. My 2022 New Year’s Resolution blog post was on climate action (I encourage you to check out the links in the blog post).

Podcasts on Women in STEM [Women’s History Month]

Why not take a moment and listen to the voices of women in STEM professions? (Honestly, how many of us have taken the time to just “listen” to a woman talk about her career – not read and article or watch a video, but only listen to her voice and her story?)

Hanlon “True, personal stories about science.” That’s the tagline of The Story Collider (TSC), a science storytelling organization that hosts events all across the country (and in the UK) and produces a weekly podcast. Full disclosure – I’m a DC producer and co-host of the show; however, the goal of this post is not promotion. Rather, we in Sharing Science want to draw attention to organizations and events like TSC that are on a …

Ask an Astronomer Podcast: Mars Attacks!

A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by fellow Cornell Grad student Laura Spitler for the Ask an Astronomer podcast. We mostly talked about MSL and the Gale crater landing site. Laura also interviewed Dan Tamayo, yet another Cornell grad student about the connection between the word “Tuesday” and the planet Mars. Now that it’s a little closer to the MSL launch, you can find the podcast here.
