SciChats is a video-conferenced-based science outreach program that pairs students in a classroom (or an alternative learning setting) with a volunteer scientist for an interactive conversation about what it’s like to be a scientist.
During the current situation we will be doing periodic short live-stream SciChats on our social media platforms. Please follow Salk Education Outreach for announcements:
Where Cures Begin is Salk’s podcast that highlights cutting-edge science and the researchers making it all possible. On the podcast, hosts Allie Akmal and Brittany Fair interview Salk’s internationally renowned and award-winning scientists to explore the very foundations of life, and learn about new understandings in neuroscience, genetics, immunology, plant biology and more. Where Cures Begin is a production of the Salk Office of Communications, and can be heard on Apple and Google podcasts, Stitcher, or click and listen on the episode webpages.
