Ever wonder how people work together to communicate clearly — to as many people as possible?
Here's one way we do it for the Buzz. A file like this gets passed around to Science Buzz bloggers at the Science Museum of Minnesota. These recommendations help our bloggers structure posts. You can see how they try to get the main point across really quickly. They point out how the subject matter relates to a general audience. Then they relate it all back to current science.
It is very common for magazines, museums and websites to have writers, editors and graphic designers all working together to make ideas come across without confusion. People who work at museums spend a lot of time figuring out how to make sense — to everyone.
There is a field called 'science writing' which attracts many people who are interested in current science as well as writing and reporting. If becoming a reporter for science interests you, why not start writing posts on Science Buzz?
