Has there ever been a more critical time for scientists to convey the value of science to lay audiences? How can we translate our research into compelling and persuasive stories that capture the riches, passion and wonder of discovery? Please join us for a lively workshop, presented by WNYC's Science Friday, where you'll learn strategies for talking about your work and its significance in a way that informs a wide range of audiences – funders, policymakers, journalists and the public at large.
