Intro To SciComm Workshops—Register Now!
COMPASS is excited to announce that, for the first time, we’ll be offering science communication workshops for individuals in Seattle, WA and Washington, D.C. in 2019!
The half-day workshops will introduce participants to the Message Box, a powerful and versatile tool designed to help you find and articulate the relevance of your science for the audiences you most want to reach, whether it’s journalists, decision makers, peers, or your parents. This lively workshop will provide lots of time for hands-on practice and feedback in small groups, and participants will receive copies of Escape from the Ivory Tower by Nancy Baron and the Message Box Workbook (also available to download or view online).
If you have always wanted to attend a COMPASS training, but have not been able to do so through your institution, this is a great opportunity to get a hands-on introduction to science communication and to meet others in your region that share your interest. Anyone with an interest in science communication is welcome to register to attend, though examples and emphasis will be around environmental science (since that’s our organizational focus and staff expertise).
The first training will be in Seattle on April 3, 2019. Additional details are available here, and you can register here. Dates for the Washington, DC workshop are TBD, but you can register to receive updates here.
There will be a limited number of full scholarships for the event; more information on applying for a scholarship is available here.
We hope you’ll join us!
