“Science” as a whole seems to be one of the most allusive and misunderstood topics in America.
Even now, when we are living in a time where scientific and technological advancements are occurring every day, and play a key role in our lives. Why is this?

After analyzing the importance of Science Communication to society I focus on two elements of this topic. First, the challenges Science Communication faces in this current national climate, including but not limited to, the public understanding of science and the relationship between scientists and journalists. Second, how communication of scientific topics can be improved to reach a larger audience.
