Science Communication Workshop at MIT

Recommended Posts

Learn how to communicate your science clearly and concisely in a way
that will resonate for people in your community at this hands-on
American Geophysical Union (AGU) communications workshop hosted by MIT
department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences.

When scientists share their work and its value with community groups,
science enters into the local dialogue, and scientists become accessible
resources in their communities.

At this interactive workshop, you will learn how to communicate science
to people in your community in a relevant, engaging, and memorable way.
You will learn how to identify the right group for you to reach out to,
how to create an effective message about your research/work, and how to
tailor your presentation for a specific audience. You will also learn
active listening skills, have the chance to practice public speaking,
and receive feedback from communication experts and your peers.

This workshop is designed for scientists who want to learn how to more
effectively communicate their research/work, as opposed to policy
professionals, outreach specialists, journalists, or other professional
communicators. You will also learn how to craft your message
specifically for speaking with policymakers, as well as how to set up
and prepare for a meeting with a Member of Congress at a local district

Scientists from all disciplines and of all communications-experience
levels are welcome. This workshop is free and lunch will be provided.
Advance sign-up is required and registration is on a first-come, first-
served basis. More info here: https://sharingscience.agu.org/mit-
