SCONC is a professional organization founded in April 2007 in the Research Triangle of North Carolina to provide fellowship and networking among folks who bring science to the public.
We include science writers, journalists, public information officers, teachers and institutional communicators working in universities, government labs, industry, museums and schools — just about anyone interested in communicating science.
SCONC is a volunteer organization that connects science communicators and cultivates a love of science across North Carolina. We welcome anyone who is interested in science communication to become a member of SCONC. We develop, support, and promote high-quality science communication through digital media and social and professional gatherings.
