  • Establish what it’s like to be a journalist
  • Contrast this with what being a scientist is like
  • Identify tensions and opportunities that arise from these differences

Warm-up activity

This section looks at how the worlds of science journalism and research can clash. As a warm-up activity, consider what being a journalist might be like.

On a piece of paper or, even better, in the comments section (so you can see other people’s suggestions), write down ten words you think describe the world of journalism.

When you’ve done this, continue to hear from Kaz Janowski, the editor at SciDev.Net about this world.
