Preliminary Program Grid for Sam Scheiner

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Sam Scheiner may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Friday 8:00 pm: Science Literacy In Fandom (Ends at: 8:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:D. Douglas Fratz, Inge Heyer, Sam Scheiner (M), Bud Sparhawk
Science fiction readers frequently encounter equations and plots that rely on the latest science. But do fans really know more science than the public? As writers/editors, how much science do you assume the reader knows and how do you decide what to explain? Do you think many readers skip the science parts or treat science as magic? Do you avoid certain ideas/topics that may require too much science? How can we educate more fans about science?
