Fighting quack science
McGill University's Office for Science & Society (OSS) in Canada has received Canadian $5.5 million grant from philanthropist, Lorne M. Trottier to increase outreach projects. The funding will ensure the long-term viability of major public science communication center in the country and allow OSS to expand its programs. The OSS team hosts broadcasts about chemistry for Canadian radio, produces columns for several newspapers, and makes television appearances in addition to answering e-mails. The team has also delivered several public lectures from the time of the establishment of OSS in 1999. Trottier's grant will help OSS focus on several science communication challenges by providing stable funding.
