Combining science and narrative storytelling to touch lives and effect meaningful change.

The Centre for Science Communication is one of the world's largest postgraduate facilities for teaching the practice of popularising science. We are also a leading research centre in the academic discipline of Science Communication. The scholarly field of Science Communication focuses on the complex and ever-changing relationship between the general public and the scientific community (including political, pedagogical, entertainment and informative dimensions).
