The Story of Science in America (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Science in America has changed dramatically over the last decade. The only thing that hasn’t change is the way many think they can receive science. Many online sources have emerged from the latest scientists, like Dr. Susskind, who does Youtube videos on physics, that are changing American by the minute.
Writing about science always has its challenges. A recent investigation into viral entry, showed how over coming those challenges of communications results in excellent looking online articles. A student of mine presented a well researched article but needed the proper guidance to make it the 500 page view a day dozy it became. A little professional touch can go a long way.
I cannot imagine a time in human history without access to science. Science writing services are now making even the “ordinary Joe” able to tell the world about “himself”. There are many ways to write about science and that is why science writing services are so helpful. They specialize at knowing how to write science to a specific audience. The science and the audience change but the services are the same.
Many magazines are pushing this new form of global communications further, like Design News, telling the average scientist, technologist or engineer that they can make their idea, intention, or patent to the market they desire and to other marketing they never thought about too. Perhaps a book about PC vs Mac or pushing a new writing utensil to market, magazines and other communications are becoming easier to access.
Engineering writing is what I do best. Many ask me what that is , and I tell them I make nuts and bolts interesting. I recently wrote one for Rotor Clip soon to be published. I will let you know when it, of course. They are a manufacturer or retaining rings. Yup, I made retaining rings fun, for engineers that is.
