This is NPR-Ayodha Ouditt, NPR Science

by aouditt

Between the blistering heat of the sun and the blinding beauty of the architecture in the city, DC lives up to any expectations one may have of an urban summer setting. I’m here because of an internship at NPR, one that revolves around “science visualization”, but promises to provide many more opportunities for lateral exploration.

“Science visualization” is what it sounds like. It’s the process of communicating science visually in an effort to make complex material more digestible to a general audience. This can take the form of videos, both live or animated, infographics, and illustrations. As part of a team here at the NPR science desk my responsibilities have fallen predominantly within the last area but if been encouraged to branch out and write my own stories if I feel so inclined…

boy do I feel inclined.

While they’re still in the embryo stages, I have at least 2 ideas for pieces I’d like to see completed and published by the end of my summer stay. For now though I’ll just keep my lips sealed and present some links to some of the things I’ve worked on in the last few weeks. In my next update I’ll be dissecting one of these pieces and going through the planning process. If you’re from RISD, the humorous twists and turns of the design process won’t surprise you.
