Summary

Polar ICE Science Communication Workshop Series for Polar Scientists
AGU Ocean Sciences Meeting
New Orleans, LA
Sunday, February 21 2016
8am – 4:30pm

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:
Application deadline is Monday, December 21, 2015

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Scientists studying the Polar Regions who want to:
* Learn strategies to communicate more effectively to diverse audiences
* Develop and engage in strong scientist-educator partnerships and professional networks
* Learn and practice communication skills

PURPOSE — WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
Scientists are increasingly being asked to communicate the “broader impacts” of their work. Polar Interdisciplinary Coordinated Education (ICE) is an interdisciplinary group of educators and scientists working together to share scientific research from the Arctic and Antarctic with educators and students. Our objective is to help scientists communicate their research from the poles beyond their academic peers to the broader community. Please join us for a hands on workshop featuring demonstrations and discussions to address skills that include:
* Connecting with diverse audiences
* Deconstructing/decoding science for non-expert audiences
* The art of telling science stories
* Networking with the education and outreach community
