the third year in a row, the Exploratorium is infiltrating the annual
meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
to be held February 16-19, 2001. Except this time the meeting is in
our home town of San Francisco, so we're planning bigger and better
coverage including daily multimedia dispatches and live webcasts from
the AAAS exposition hall.
is the 167th meeting of AAAS and over 5000 scientists, engineers,
educators, policymakers, students and journalists will converge to
attend this mother of all interdisciplinary science meetings. More
than 750 speakers will participate in 140 multidisciplinary session
featuring the latest research on the science of "new generation"
telescopes, quantum devices, genetically modified foods, nutraceuticals,
the biosphere, gene therapy, obesity, addiction and the brain, and
team of writers, videographers, web developers and producers will
be roaming the hallways, meeting rooms, and special events at AAAS.
We'll be bringing you full website coverage of as much science and
meeting culture as we can take including:
writers will scour the program for interesting symposia and lectures
and post multimedia stories on what we find out.
Exploratorium is setting up a webcast studio inside the exhibition
hall with selected exhibits from the museum floor. We'll be challenging
scientists to explain the science behind puzzling phenomena during
live webcasts every day.
media crew will give you a behind-the-scenes peek of the action, including
digital photos and audio and video clips.
video interviews, we'll chat with
science writers and reporters covering the meeting to bring you the
