In this episode of On My Coast, we’re joined by Beth Lenz (Assistant Director for Diversity and Community Engagement at Hawaii Sea Grant), Keith Ellenbogen (Associate Professor of Photography at SUNY the Fashion Institute of Technology & Visiting Artist at MIT Sea Grant), and Syma Ebbin (Research Coordinator at Connecticut Sea Grant & Associate Professor in Residence at the University of Connecticut) for a roundtable-style conversation about art and science. Portions of this live conversation have been edited for clarity.

A blog written by and about fellows funded by Maryland Sea Grant provides valuable experience in communicating about science.
Virginia Sea Grant’s Advanced Science Communication Seminar challenged graduate student scientists to develop a communication tool that explains their research to the public. One graduate student’s infographic about sea turtle strandings ended up crossing institutional boundaries.
Scientists in Maryland have published numerous studies on the impacts of climate change on the Mid-Atlantic region, but communicating the results of that research has proved difficult. Many residents in the state’s coastal communities lack a good understanding of the risks that climate change and sea level rise in particular pose to their way of life. In 2012, Maryland Sea Grant held a statewide climate change forum to inform efforts to share and discuss the findings of climate science with these communities.
