These days, communicating with young people about science is critical  — especially when the phrase “fake news” is often applied to scientific topics. Today’s tweens and teens are the next generation of voters; some could be casting their first ballots as soon as next month. To make good decisions, they will need both science literacy and media literacy — the ability to judge a report’s credibility and authenticity.

NLP’s director of partnerships, Damaso Reyes, is joining science writers and editors at ScienceWriters2018 — the annual meeting of the National Association of Science Writers — for a panel on Saturday, Oct. 13, titled “Talking with young people about science in the age of #fakenews.” Panelists will share insights and experience from diverse areas that include news literacy training, public engagement and outreach, and science journalism for middle school and high school students.
