How does this work contribute to Seeing Science Differently?
The session is an overview of various research into those members of the community who don’t really get what the fuss about science is all about, and are not particularly engaged by science as a topic of interest. The presentation will draw on research undertaken at the CSIRO and Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, to show what amount of people are not much interested in science, why they are not – and importantly what types of things can be done to better engage them.
