PA24A:
The Many Sides of Sharing Science: A How-To II


Session ID#: 8380

Session Description:
Communicating the importance and societal relevance of science is an integral part of successful scientific advancement. But how do we do it well? Both fortunately and unfortunately, there is no single answer to this question—but there are multiple examples of effective communication in a wide variety of venues, reaching many different audiences. The more we learn about the kinds of outreach and communication actions others have taken—some less expected than others—the more we expand the range of successful science communication/outreach techniques available to us. We welcome those who have reached out to broader audiences (journalists, policy makers, educators, public groups) in many ways (illustration/video, visits and talks, contests, interviews, social media, etc.) to share their experiences.
