Carnegie STEM Girls: Science Journalist

Science journalists or writers have a passion for science and want to spread it to people who might not have much background in science!

They help translate the complex and technical material in scientific journals into language that non-scientists can understand. Science journalists have to maintain the accuracy of information that science is all about, while still providing eye-catching details that can grab a reader’s attention. Some science journalists may work for newspapers or magazines, while others may run online blogs. Science journalists may not necessarily have a degree in the field on which they’re reporting, but most science journalists have a bachelor’s degree in science or engineering.
