About this Workshop

Science communication, also known as science interpretation, education, or outreach, is an important tool for sharing research discoveries and the nature of science with public audiences. Science communication helps build trust in and support for science. It also helps individuals become informed decision-makers by providing them with science-based knowledge and resources. Given its importance, science communication experience is often sought by employers, funding agencies, and more.

In this free workshop we will help prepare you to develop effective broader impacts proposals for National Science Foundation grants. Attend this workshop to enhance existing science communication skills and develop new tools for sharing your research.
