Abstract

The Latham Science Engagement Initiative at the University of Iowa gives students an opportunity to explore science communication. As part of a project sponsored by this program, I designed and managed a blog-based science publication called Stemosphere. Running Stemosphere was an opportunity to study the reception of scientific content in a digital space and think about systematically improving that reception. The following article, podcast, and video include both a case study of Stemosphere and a narrative about my experiences working on the project.

Keywords: science communication, blog, blogging, social media, multimodal composition, multimodality
