In the March 14 issue of Science
, a letter
was published responding to our April 2007 Policy Forum essay
and our October 2007 cover article
at The Scientist
. In her letter, Ruth Cronje emphasizes that it is important for the public to understand science as a process and method
, a goal that is best accomplished through formal education where you have (usually) a motivated and attentive audience and (hopefully) well designed content.
Cronje is on the faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and I look forward to discussing the topic with her further when I am in town next week giving a series of campus talks
