The goals of this intensive workshop are to improve participants’ science communication capabilities and help them translate their science to reach broader audiences, including those with questions or concerns about the methods, findings or implications of scientific research.


The workshop will feature a format of interactive, hands-on activities. Participants will use their own data and research to create products designed to help communicate with their intended audiences. Expected outputs include key messaging statements and a draft of a newsletter describing the participants’ research. Participants should bring a laptop with them.
