Graduate students at US institutions in all fields of science and engineering are encouraged to apply to attend the Communicating Science 2014 workshop to be held in Cambridge, MA on June 12-14th, 2014. The application will close on March 1st. Participants will build the communication skills that technical professionals need to express complex ideas to their peers, experts in other fields, and the general public. There will be panel discussions on the following topics: Communicating with non-scientific audiences, communicating complexity and controversy, communicating for a cause, communicating with multimedia, and engaging diverse audiences. In addition to these discussions, ample time is allotted for interacting with the experts and with attendees from throughout the country to develop new science outreach collaborations. Workshop participants will produce an original piece of science writing and receive feedback from workshop attendees and professional science communicators, including journalists, fiction and non-fiction authors, public policy advocates, educators, and more.
