How does this session contribute to Seeing Science Differently?
Science communication is by its very nature about extending the outreach of science to the public, but it is not always consciously framed as a human-centred design endeavour (or even as the domain of design). Through the LAWA design process (and subsequent projects), it is possible to examine how HCD can enable science to be seen from a new perspective.
