Journalism SciXchange: Embedding journalists in the scientific laboratory

Two teams of three journalists had an opportunity to be embedded in a science lab. The experiment was two-fold — the journalists worked with transgenic organisms in the lab while being part of the experiment itself. Before the experiment began team two came up with the following hypothesis: If journalists are embedded in the scientific lab, they will be able to communicate the scientific research more clearly to the general public. This video presents a breakdown of the scientific process including successes, failures and recommendations for future SciXchange projects. http://bit.ly/1NJMLi4

Almeta Crayton shared her worldview: ‘It’s about the children’

In the summer of 2015, I sat in an old chair on a front yard in an unfamiliar neighborhood. I was in the heart of Columbia’s First Ward, the place Almeta Crayton called home, and I was there to interview Ms. Almeta. What began as a simple story for a class project ended up providing a life lesson. But then again, that’s how Ms. Almeta lived her life — leading by example and going above and beyond. She understood the importance of putting a face to issues that might not always be the easiest to talk about. During our conversation, she shared her worldview about things such as being a positive example for kids, the importance of having a purpose in life and why community connections matter. Here, I share clips from our June conversations, with the hope that others can learn from them as well.
