“…the need to make critical decisions related to climate change, such as how to limit greenhouse gas emissions, understand and plan for potential risks, mitigate impacts to the health and well-being of humans and the natural world, and adapt to changes that cannot be prevented, makes it increasingly essential to find ways to improve productive and inclusive civic dialogue around science. Building this capacity for a more effective and equitable science communication ecosystem will require marshaling the collective strengths, creativity, and expertise of research, practice, and communities.”

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!

Although the Philadelphia Phillies ended up losing the World Series in Game 6, the 2022 season ended with excitement beyond baseball. It also ended with a valuable lesson in information literacy, and why you should always check your sources.

Scientists on the first oceanographic expedition realized how important it was to engage in science communication and storytelling outside of their science circles, while at sea and upon returning home. This is a good reminder that we need to continue to build upon those early messages sent via snail mail, using our modern-day technologies, to share our oceanographic work with others. Communications, no matter what the tool utilized, is key to education, engagement, excitement, and increasing science literacy across all audiences.

What is your science journey: unlocking Earth’s secrets? exploring the heights of our atmosphere to the depths of our ocean? or teaching others about the wonders of our universe? We invite quilters of all ages and skill levels to join us in December 2021 for a virtual celebration of quilts that celebrate the earth and space sciences. Create a mini quilt or a square illustrating your work in and/or passion for earth and space science research, communication or education.
