About Us


The former SPCG is now “Science Says”!! According to news headlines, science says a lot of things, but what do we really learn from scientific studies, and how do these findings impact our daily lives?

Wading through science-related news can be difficult, but science isn’t an elite league of geniuses or a collection of hard facts. Science is a process of gathering evidence from carefully controlled tests to gain understanding of the natural world. Our goal is to empower everyone to investigate how scientific findings impact their daily lives. We’re cultivating a community of science communicators to demystify the scientific process and challenge misconceptions. So what does science really say?

Our Mission: To cultivate a community of science communicators at UC Davis dedicated to making scientific research accessible, relevant, and interesting to everyone.

Our Vision: A world without ivory towers of science, in which everyone asks and explores scientific questions about the world around them.

If you’re a scientist who’s passionate about making science more accessible, join us for one of our upcoming events.
