What's the Big Idea?


Joe Palca is fascinated by science and scientists. As the host of NPR's "Joe's Big Idea," he explores the minds and motivations of scientists and inventors.

Where do their ideas come from? How to they pursue their ideas? How does something go from idea to discovery?

Another question Joe asks is, "how can we help scientists communicate their ideas effectively?" Whether you are a scientist, science enthusiast or a science communicator, you won't want to miss this chance to talk about the possibilities and pitfalls of communicating complex and important topics.
