Science in the News’ SIT’N Listen Returns to Radio Contact!

Live Podcast from Radio Contact Exhibit

Sponsored by SIT’N Listen & Academic Ventures of Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.    

The oceans cover 70% of our planet, but did you know that less than 5% of the ocean floor has been explored?  In the face of rapid climate change, ocean scientists are racing to understand what makes a healthy ocean and how rapid changes in ocean temperature, currents and chemistry will affect biodiversity, fishing, tourism, land erosion and myriad of other aspects that will affect us on land. 

Come join us at the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments (CHSI) at 6pm Thursday, 29 September for a live podcast recording and Q&A with graduate students from MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as they discuss how they’re contributing to our understanding of the oceans and how their research is relevant to our daily lives. The podcast will be produced in a collaboration between Science in the News’s SIT’N Listen! Podcast and Academic Ventures of Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
