SCONC is a network of friends and colleagues scattered across North Carolina who share an interest in science and a passion for explaining it to others.
SCONC includes science writers, journalists, public information officers, teachers and institutional communicators working in universities, government labs, industry, museums and schools. Ours is a big-tent organization.
We’re mostly concentrated in the middle around the Research Triangle, but there are SCONCs in the mountains and SCONCs on the beach. Our get-togethers are always fun and enlightening, even if it’s just a Durham Bulls game.
We’re the folks who brought you the best Halloween party in National Association of Science Writers history during SciWri 2012; the groundbreaking Science Online conferences; and the NASW-supported “Measure Locally, Act Globally” climate change conference for journalists in 2016.
Get plugged in to one of our various channels to share ideas and keep up with events and job openings!
