The AAAS Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology has partnered with the National Science Foundation to provide resources, both online (www.aaas.org/communicatingscience) and through in-person workshops, to help researchers communicate more broadly with the public. This 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. Pre-registration for this full-day workshop is required; visit www.aaas.org/communicatingscience for additional information and to register.
