Science Journalism Workshop

Montreal - Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Four EMSB students, Tristan St. Victor in Grade 6 at FACE, Sy Evensen-Watson in Grade 5 at Pierre-Elliot Trudeau Elementary School in Rosemount and Jacob Rodrigo and Gio Park, both in Grade 6 at Carlyle Elementary in TMR, were chosen to take part in an exciting new Science Journalism workshop hosted by Broad Science in collaboration with Let's Talk Science McGill and CKUT 90.3 fm. Each student was matched up with a McGill faculty scientist and asked to research their scientist's field of study. On the morning of the workshop, the students learned interviewing and radio production skills with McGill graduate students and the CKUT station coordinator. In the afternoon, they finally got to meet and interview their scientists, who reported being "blown away" by the kids' enthusiasm and scientific knowledge. Great fun was had by all! The individual interviews can be heard on the Broad Science website: broadscience.org/broad-science-youth. Here is the broadcast.  “This is a great example of our bright, enthusiastic, bilingual kids out in the world,” says Heather Barton, the mom of Jacob.
