COMPASS Science Communication Training for Faculty, Students and Community Partners

The UK Center for Appalachian Research in Environmental Sciences (UK-CARES) and the Undergraduate Research Experience in Environmental Health Sciences (SURES) Program present the COMPASS Science Communications Training. COMPASS is a pioneer in the practice of science communication and their coaches help scientists build the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to effectively engage in public discourse about the environment.

This half-day training led by Communications Coach, Amy Mathews Amos, will introduce the Message Box Workbook to help participants share what they do, what they know—and most importantly, why it matters—in clear, lively terms. Grounded in the latest research on science communication, this training is designed to help participants find the relevance of their science for the audiences they most want to reach—journalists, policymakers, the public, and even other scientists.
