Free Workshop, AAAS Meeting San Diego

There will be a free workshop, Communicating Science: Tools for Scientists and Engineers at the AAAS Annual Meeting at the San Diego Convention Center on February 18, 2010. We would like to extend an invitation to researchers and faculty at the University of California, San Diego.

There is no registration fee to attend the full day workshop; however, space is limited, and pre-registration is required.

Scientists and engineers who foster information sharing and respect between science and the public are essential for the public communication of and engagement with science. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has partnered with Advancing Science Serving Society (AAAS) to provide resources, both online and through in-person workshops, to help researchers communicate more broadly with the public. The interactive workshop will include why science communication is important, the defining of audience and message in communication with public audiences; media interviews; on-camera practice; public outreach opportunities; NSF's Broader Impacts requirement; and more.
