Overview

Science is often perceived as the cool pursuit of objective knowledge, yet most scientists will tell you that it was a personal experience that attracted them to their field of choice. Science, She Loves Me is a powerful and engaging collection for science educators and communicators about how to communicate more effectively, more creatively, and more passionately, about science. This unique miscellany includes ideas, discussions and methods for sharing the joys of science with both students and the public. Through the use of text and images, Science, She Loves Me looks at the way science is used, expressed and explored by individuals, artists, scientists and teachers, from cafes and classrooms all the way to theatre stages and Hollywood. Contributors include: Jay Ingram, Simon Singh, Richard P. Feynman, Lawrence M. Krauss and Billy Kluver, to name just a few.
