People in our community don’t usually gravitate towards Science or Technology programming because I think they fail to see it’s usefulness in their day to day. They enjoy a debate and have all kind of thoughts and opinions to share but they don’t consider their thoughts on farming or energy, etc. to be “science”. Maybe that’s because they think science is a thing they studied in elementary school? It has helped us to play up the discussion and specific issues rather than using the word “science”.
