Terminators: Wordplays for Ideas & Insights


Media in science is usually short for "culture medium" meaning, for example, the liquid or gel that you use to grow bacteria. Medium comes from the Latin 'medius' meaning middle. Science communicators are also interested in the media--the people in the middle who communicate messages. Merriam-Websters' concise definition of media is "a medium of cultivation, conveyance, or expression."
