Each year, the Center for Science and Society awards Seed Grants to innovative interdisciplinary projects from students, postdocs, and faculty to support collaborative research and programming. Podcasts have exploded in popularity over the past decade as an easy way to learn or laugh while on the go. During your next (socially distanced) walk, we encourage you to listen to the new podcast, What Do We Know? Columbia student creators Kate Steiner (a senior majoring in astrophysics) and Ben Wolman (a senior majoring in earth and environmental sciences) use unique examples to explore connections and questions across science and society. Learn more about the series from Kate and Ben and their first episode, Invisible Dangers on our website.
This project is sponsored by a 2020 CSS Seed Grant focusing on our fifth-year anniversary theme of “Knowledge and Access.” Applications are open for 2021 CSS Seed Grants, Deadline: December 15.
