Scientists:  1. Resources  2. ASA Outreach

Resources

You all have a story to tell. Your science and research can inform, inspire, and enlighten. With the growing global concern about climate change, scientists and researchers are increasingly being asked to communicate and interact with the public. Scientists are often asked to share results of their research, their perspectives, and their passions for science and discovery. Scientific outreach activities take on many forms including public presentations, media interviews, classroom visits, research partnerships with schools, and involvement in Schools on Board - ArcticNet's main outreach program with schools.

The strength of this experiential program is the direct involvement of scientists who volunteer to deliver lectures, lab activities, demonstrations, and fieldwork opportunities to participants. The aim of this page is to provide you with some tools that may assist you in communicating your science to the public and more specifically, to facilitate your involvement in the Schools on Board field program.
