The ability to convey complex concepts effectively can help scientists successfully engage in a variety of public and professional interactions, including speaking with public audiences, conducting media interviews, writing grant proposals, discussing ideas with students, testifying before Congress, and/or participating in a public forum.

This interactive workshop, conducted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), will touch on all of these aspects, with a special emphasis on speaking to and initiating dialogue with public audiences regarding climate science and climate change adaptation and impacts.

AAAS has developed and maintains a successful communication-skills training program for researchers, “Communicating Science: Tools for Scientists and Engineers”.  The program is specifically designed to address the needs of scientists and engineers in communicating scientific information to those outside their immediate field.

The science communication event will be facilitated by Linda Hosler, program associate at the AAAS Center for Public Engagement.

This workshop is open to all, but space is limited & pre-registration to attend the workshop is required.

If you would like to attend, please register now!
