Purdue Students for Responsible Science and Engineering Presents the Free Conference "Science in the Media" Featuring Tech Correspondent David Pogue
Free Public Conference "Science in the Media - Understanding Science Communication's Impact" featuring keynote David Pogue, New York Times and Yahoo Tech columnist, TV host, and best-selling author.
The 2019 conference's theme is on the impact media portrayals of science have on STEM research and broader society.
The keynote speaker, David Pogue, is one of the most entertaining, informative, and enormously popular speakers out there today. Whether he's covering self-driving cars, virtual reality, blockchain, drones, "robot uprisings," the Internet of Things, or artificial intelligence, his highly engaging keynotes prove that science and technology blend brilliantly with storytelling, humor - and frequently music and song. David provides invaluable insights on how technology impacts our work, businesses, and connections with each other - now and into the future.
