General Meeting Information
The Penn State Science Writers Group meets monthly on the last Tuesday of the month at noon. These brown bag lunches feature speakers of interest to the science communications community and the university community in general. Speakers range from scientists describing cuttting edge research to scientists describing their interactions with the press. Writers and editors have also been known to lead discussions of the depths and heights of science communication.
About once a year the group has a field trip to a laboratory or other location of interest.
Typically there are no meetings in December or June and July, but a summer picnic and speaker is sometimes scheduled.
