We use science everyday, scientists are discovering something new everyday, and a piece of scientific news might just change the world everyday! Especially in the 21st century, keeping up with the world of science is imperative. Getting the most accurate, most digestible, and most relevant scientific news, however, can be quite challenging as misinformation rampant, and scientific news can be full of a lot of information that is inaccessible to the public. So, how do we enable and create more accessible, exciting, and engaging science media online that people can learn from and share with their friends and families? How do people know they can trust the news, fact check, and work to better understand new scientific discoveries?
These questions are where, Massive Science, a scientific content and media company, comes in. Powered by a “Massive Science Consortium” which is a group of scientific experts from over 50 countries, in over 150 fields, and at over 700 institutions, Massive Science aims to create a space where experts can share cutting edge scientific news and research via their accessible online platform by training scientists on how to be powerful scientific storytellers. Massive Science teaches the members of the Consortium how to create a more engaging narrative regarding their discoveries by empowering them to work with a professional team of editors and other researchers.
