About cSw

Each year, curiousSCIENCEwriters selects a group of high school students through a highly competitive application process to participate in an intensive extracurricular training program. Key elements include mentoring by scientists and science communications professionals through remote and onsite sessions. This collaborative process, which includes student writers, editors, graphic designers, and social media coordinators results in credible, engaging science stories that are disseminated through a variety of traditional and trending media outlets.

Founded by Jayne Mackta in 2010, past president of the New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research, cSw has operated under the auspices of States United for Biomedical Research from 2013 to 2018 and is now hosted by Americans for Medical Progress.
