A 21st-century scientist must be able to communicate their work in clear, compelling and actionable ways. Through hands-on workshops and special events with seasoned science communicators, we’re empowering our scientists and students with the skills they need to effectively connect with public audiences.
Demonstrating the Broader Impacts of Research
To compete for federal research dollars, our faculty must demonstrate both the scientific merit of their proposed work and how it benefits society. The Office of Public Science, in collaboration with The Science House and the College of Sciences Research Office, works with researchers to develop innovative plans for achieving these “broader impacts.” We offer workshops and one-on-one coaching to help our researchers more creatively, authentically and effectively engage public audiences.
