Stevens Institute of Technology created the Center for Science Writings in 2005 to draw attention to writings — from books to blogs — that shape public perceptions of science. The Center sponsors free, public events at which prominent writers — journalists, scientists, engineers, philosophers and other scholars — visit Stevens to discuss science-related issues. Stevens freshmen taking introductory engineering courses receive credit for attending selected CSW events.


Science journalist John Horgan serves as director of the Center.
