Science Communication Workshops
Are you a STEM professional looking to improve communication skills and connect with new audiences? Our Science Communication Workshops help you enhance communication within your team and with external audiences, improving understanding of current scientific research.
Our workshops introduce you to strategies to leverage how people learn to connect their prior knowledge and experience to new science concepts. You will practice communicating complex scientific concepts to general audiences and receive support in developing meaningful and relevant messaging related to your work.
Science Communication Workshops are offered during the week throughout San Diego County and are dedicated to helping you become a better science communicator to connect with your community.

SCIENCE COMMUNICATION IN ACTION
The Fleet Science Center offers many programs to a wide variety of audiences, providing opportunities for scientists and researchers to practice their science communication. These programs pair a public audience with a content expert.
Better Education for Women in Science and Engineering (BE WiSE) stimulates and sustains female and female-identifying student interest in science through engaging hands-on activities at science career sites. As a scientist, you can connect with girls as a female scientist role model or host a workshop at your institution.
