According to Wikipedia, Public AWareness of Science (PAWS), Public Understanding of Science (PUS) or more recently, Public Engagement with Science and Technology are terms relating to the attitudes, behaviors, opinions and activities that comprise the relations between the general public or lay society as a whole to scientific knowledge and organization. It is a comparatively new approach to the task of exploring the multitude of relations and linkages science, technology and innovation have among the public. Join us to explore events about science, technology and innovation all over Chicago!
