What constitutes science outreach? Teaching, public lectures, museum exhibits, yes. But also blogging, tweeting, and engaging non-scientists in the everyday happenings of lab work, field work, and the scientific process. DNLee, biologist and blogger at The Urban Scientist, is launching #DispatchesDNLee; a three-part science outreach platform designed to “connect people directly to science, discovery and nature” while she spends her first summer field expedition tagging the African Giant Pouched Rat in Tanzania. Follow her updates with hashtag #DispatchesDNLee, or sign up to receive a postcard from the field!
