It’s never too soon to learn lab safety. Family Science Days at the AAAS annual meeting in Austin, Texas (A. Kotok)

18 February 2018. Science & Enterprise is reporting this weekend from some of the key sessions at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Austin, Texas. But there’s more going on at the meeting than papers and presentations, including Family Science Days, always a big hit with kids of all ages. Of particular note, AAAS is encouraging researchers to better explain their science to audiences outside the lab, including help with a professional head shot photo for their resumes and web pages.

Science & Enterprise returns to its regular posting on Tuesday, 20 February.
