Recipes for making science appetizing: Flora Lichtman at TEDxCooperUnion

4y ago


Flora Lichtman is the multimedia editor at National Public Radio's "Science Friday," where she makes videos for the web and chats about them on the radio. She's the co-author of "Annoying: The Science Of What Bugs Us" (Wiley, 2011)--unfortunately a topic of deep personal interest--and writes regularly for Popular Science magazine. Before coming to Science Friday, Flora worked at a NATO oceanographic lab in Italy, where she cruised around the Mediterranean Sea looking for marine mammals. She graduated from Yale University with a degree in Environmental Studies. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
