Wikipedia is often the first place people go to learn about new science… so let’s work together edit it to reflect the best in plant science!
Attend the ASPB Edit-a-thon to help ensure this powerful tool for communicating science to the general public is as accurate, as balanced and as up to date as possible. Over a light lunch, learn basic editing skills and best practices for editing science content on Wikipedia. Contribute information within your field and connect with other colleagues. Enhance your teaching and Broader Impacts outcomes.
Plant Biology 2016/Austin: Monday, July 11th 12-3 (Room 13a)
Bring your WiFi-ready laptop (preferred) or tablet, and you’re ready to go.
Stay a little, stay a while.
