Dr. Melanie Peffer is the author of “Biology Everywhere: How the Science of Life Matters to Everyday Life”, a book that reveals how biological concepts taught in the classroom are connected to the world around us. In this episode, we discuss key concepts from the book including changes to the way science is taught, how creative processes are used in scientific work, and understanding how scientific knowledge is acquired. We also talk about engaging with non-scientific audiences even when they adopt anti-scientific points of view, and how COVID-19 has revealed the way that scientific work and knowledge evolves to the public.
