Re: Caltech Science Exchange
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Caltech Science Exchange, a new web resource dedicated to clear and credible explanations of high-profile science and engineering topics.
In creating and curating content for this new platform, Caltech has the opportunity to help visitors make sense of scientific issues that capture public interest and attention, but often are the subject of confusion or controversy. The site currently features multimedia content explaining the science behind COVID-19 and other viral threats. New topics, including voting and elections, sustainability, earthquakes, and genetics, will be added in the months ahead.
The Caltech Science Exchange benefitted from recommendations by a faculty committee representing the Institute's six academic divisions. We thank our colleagues for their input and continued support of this effort.
We invite you to explore and share the Caltech Science Exchange.
