There are a wealth of materials and resources available for communicating science to the public. What I have here isn’t even the tip of the iceberg, but I hope for those that aren’t yet familiar with these resources, this provides a materials for your science communication toolkit!

Shermann “Dilla” Thomas grew up and is a life-long resident of Chicago. He is not a scientist, but a public worker that shared a few tips for us at AGU on sharing our science to help lead the future.

My first blog post from the 2021 AGU Fall Meeting is dedicated to the AGU staff for their incredible preparation and effort into planning and carrying out the first/largest hybrid conference – paving the way for new ideas and models of connection and collaboration among the global science community

ISeeChange and the NASA Citizen Science portfolio of programs are excellent for faculty to think about utilizing as a way to engage students in their local environments, especially during remote/online instruction, and can serve as a foundation for undergraduate research efforts.

I encourage all researchers and research mentors to post more about the process of science – the stages of research, the tools we use, how we prepare to disseminate results, etc. All of these are important for students to see and connect with, especially with students doing work during this time of the pandemic away from research labs and face-to-face research communities.

The new Contract should extend well beyond research and training activities. Some of the most pressing needs include communicating the certainties and uncertainties and seriousness of different environmental or social problems, providing alternatives to address them, and educating citizens about the issues. In parallel to initiating new research, strong efforts should be launched to better communicate scientific information already in hand. — Lubchenco (1998), Science

NASA Chief Scientist Dr. James Green spoke on the Inspire Stage in Centennial Central on The Future of Lunar and Mars Exploration. Sessions like this, where one doesn’t have to be a space scientist at an Earth and space conference to understand, are an excellent example of science communication at its best.

Enter the idea of “invisible rules”. We all thought we knew the boundaries of the task at hand, of the assignment in front of us… yet we were mistaken. If this is what we as experienced instructors think, imagine what our students think.

As Scientist Spotlights require very little class time and complement existing curricula, they represent a promising tool for enhancing science identity, shifting stereotypes, and connecting content to issues of equity and diversity in a broad range of STEM classrooms.

“AGUs Thriving Earth Exchange is when scientific knowledge and community wisdom come together, where scientists do not stand for people but stand along side them. This is new – this is a movement.”
