Posts tagged with “P123 Speaker” (All posts)

  • Fridays, 6a (3:30-4:30), Olin 149 (please note room change for this week!)

    The Department of Physics and Astronomy is pleased to present this year’s Physics 123 series.  “What Physicists Do” is our annual series of five lectures by invited speakers, many of whom are Carleton Physics alumni.  It is intended to introduce students to a broad range of real-world physics and to give some perspective on the kinds of work done by people with a physics background.  After each presentation, please join us in the 2nd Olin student lounge for coffee & cookies, and the opportunity to talk face-to-face with the featured speaker. 

    Friday May 2nd (week 5)  

    Kelen Tuttle ’04 “"Explaining Physics to Non-Scientists"

    After graduating with a B.A in Physics from Carleton, she went on to get her M.S. in Science Journalism from Boston University.  She has worked as a Science Information Specialist at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, and as the Editor-in-Chief of Symmetry Magazine. 

    Too impatient to conduct science research herself, Kelen Tuttle '04 has built a career in science journalism. She spends her days interviewing scientists, asking them all her questions and getting immediate answers--well, most of the time. In return, she shares their stories with the general public in easy-to-understand language that captures the curiosity and excitement of scientific endeavor. Kelen will talk about the wide range of roles she's undertaken at Department of Energy-funded laboratories, including running a magazine about particle physics, overseeing communications with decision-makers in Washington DC, and writing press releases and science features. She will also offer advice on how scientists can best share their research with non-scientists directly.
