From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines

BY BART KNOLS
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?"

One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it?

In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols idiscusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, October 10th, 2016.

Oceans of Data

"I do exploration and documentation of shipwrecks and sunken aircrafts"In Documenting Sunken Ship Sites from Jackson, MS, Vol. 7 Kelly Gleason, PHD, an underwater archaeologist for NOAA in Honolulu, HI, describes how artefacts become historical record which in turn can create connection with our stories and civilisation as a whole. One shipwreck discovery, the Two Brothers, is significant because it tells more of the story that inspired the novel, Moby Dick.

Ignite Wild Idea about Research

When we are bogged down in our daily work of taking or teaching classes, in the weeds of doing research, writing, marking, sitting in meetings, reading emails….it is easy to lose sight about what excites us about learning and discovery. Do you have budding ideas for research, projects you would love to do, new, perhaps even wild, ideas you would like to ignite—suspending concerns of time and resources? As students and faculty together here at Acadia University, how often do we get a chance, or take the time, to tell other people about the things we are passionate about? We are carving out some time to do just that on campus February 15 at the Axe Lounge (6-7:30). Be a Pecha Kucha storyteller, and share your Wild Ideas About Research with your Acadia community, or just come out and listen, celebrate passion for learning, have some pizza brought to you by Research and Graduate Studies, and if you want, toast a beer. Interested in presenting or need more information about Pecha Kuckas as a storytelling format? Tips for presenting? The PK team is here to help.   Contact Lesley at Lesley.frank@acadiau.ca or Kent at kwilliams67@me.com
