Science and math outreach are big, as the success of Science 2.0 can attest. Radiolab and Freakonomics regularly top the iTunes charts.
Now, Public Radio Exchange (PRX) is seeking the next great audio storytellers as part of its Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Story Project.
The winning submissions will receive funding to produce a short audio segment that will be distributed to public radio stations nationwide this summer. The STEM Story Project is accepting proposals for short radio segments through April 22nd until 11:59 PM Eastern US time, so get pitching.
Proposals should address under-covered topics or people working in science, technology, engineering, and math. They want science reporting but not old timey talking head stuff. 4-7 minutes long.
