Planting the seeds of science communication.

Where do we start when we want to share our science with our broader communities? Which social platform is the best medium for the topics we want to amplify to engage the audience we want to reach with our preferred style of communication? Join us for a two-hour workshop to: -Meet a panel of plant science communicators who reach people through varied media and platforms: community outreach, museums & botanical gardens, social media, video, and writing -Hear their advice on how to effectively talk about plant science to diverse audiences -Ask questions about how to get started -Connect with other scicomm enthusiasts In this workshop, a panel of science communicators will introduce themselves and their work, and share some actionable advice. Then we will chat in small groups where you can learn directly from the panelists who best align with your scicomm interests. You will leave the workshop with ideas for developing an action plan for your science communication strategy.
