Distrust in science abounds - affecting our politics, our health, and society’s ability to solve the many contemporary challenges we face. How can we introduce science to learners in a way that fosters trust in science, while still encouraging critical thinking, constructive dialogue, and a healthy amount of skepticism? Join journalists and educators from public radio’s Science Friday as we break down the common missteps of how science is introduced, framed, and represented and share some clear strategies for growing critical science thinkers in the classroom.
