Workshops for any Career Level
Now Booking for Spring 2016!

The AAAS Communicating Science workshops are specifically designed for scientists at any career level who want to better communicate complex or challenging concepts to non-scientific audiences, including funders, policy-makers, journalists, and the public.

Workshops typically last 3-6 hours and are customized to the needs, skills, and interests of the participants. Through group discussions and short practice sessions, AAAS facilitators and scientist peers provide participants with feedback and concrete advice on messages, audiences, and communication skill development.
Learn more about our Communicating Science workshops, or contact us today to discuss hosting a workshop at your institution.
