Do I Need An Umbrella? Lessons On Communicating Scientific Uncertainty From TV Weather Forecasting

Hosted by Duke Science & Society

Uncertainty is a fundamental part of the scientific endeavor but a topic that can be difficult for non-scientists to understand. This session will focus on how TV meteorologists address this topic on a daily basis as well as other strategies that can assist in the process of communicating science virtually.

Sara Kobilka is the owner and principal consultant at Renaissance Woman Consulting. As indicated in the company name, Sara has a wide-ranging background that includes journalism, broadcast meteorology, informal science education, non-profit management, science communication/outreach professional development, facilitating virtual meetings, and teaching group fitness classes to name a few.
