Workshop: Science Communication for Youth Audiences

Communicating your science with youth audiences during graduate school is a powerful way to improve public science literacy and inspire the next generation of scientists. In collaboration with the BU’s Wheelock College of Education and Human Development, we are hosting a Science Communication Workshop with the following goals:

  • Introduce graduate students to principles and practices behind how young people learn science (with a focus on Massachusetts) and how to incorporate social justice into science education.
  • Foster a productive conversation between educators and graduate students about opportunities and challenges for bringing scientific research into classroom settings.

The workshop will consist of two parts: asynchronous materials to read/watch at your leisure, and a live event on May 10 including a debrief discussing, hosted by Wheelock’s Don DeRosa, about the materials and a panel discussion, featuring current middle and high school teachers in the region.
