Scientists meet science writers at New Horizons 2016

CASW's New Horizons Traveling Fellows have now posted coverage of the 2016 program—including a tongue-in-cheek interactive game simulating the experience of a freelancer getting a travel grant to attend a science writers' conference.

Amy Mayer and Nancy Averett chose to focus on the powerful pair of sessions that focused on citizens and science. Jacob Roberts was taken with Mark Riedl's presentation on creativity and artificial intelligence—and inspired to recap his ScienceWriters2016 experience in the form of game.

The Fellows' contributions can be found in the 2016 New Horizons Newsroom.
