Looking for ways to enhance your science communication skills? Join us for a Polar-ICE Scientist Communication Workshop where you will explore:
- Connecting with diverse audiences
- Crafting and telling your science story
- Deconstructing/decoding science for non-expert audiences
- Building effective ways to teach and communicate with the public
- Broadening the reach of your science and telling your science story
Participant Benefits: All participants will receive the opportunity to:
- Develop broader impact (BI) skills including how to breakdown and decode your science, to identify your audience, to explore how different audiences understand new material, to successfully work with diverse audiences, to practice effective communication approaches, and to gain additional networking techniques;
- Brainstorm ways to develop a successful integrated research and education plan, which balances personal interest in science communication, professional need to participate in BI “NSF Criterion II” activities for funding, and successful scientific research;
- Connect with educators, learning scientists, and media professionals from across the country who can aid in the planning and implementation of future BI activities;
- Network with polar scientists from across the country who also share an interest in effectively communicating polar science;
- Receive a stipend as well as breakfast and lunch during the workshop.
