This resource guide is meant to inspire and empower – not only are there great examples, but we’ve provided practical advice about why, how, and when each media type can help you get your message across.
Our instructors and contributors (to the #ESA2014 SciComm workshop) distilled their years of experience – successes and misadventures alike – into this guide book. Fully illustrated with photos and sketches done by our team, we hope this guide helps you enhance your SciComm, or at least inspires you to try doing a little SciComm.
We’d love to hear what you find useful, and what you wish we’d included. Just let us know in the comments!
We are very intentionally offering a ‘tapas’ style taster of different ways you could communicate your science, and there will be a strong emphasis on storytelling. We want you to walk away with a sense of the unique strengths of these different media for powering science communication, and to develop some sense of preference for what you might be interested in exploring more in the future.
Plan on having lots of fun, and trying lots of new things!
