Speaking of Physics… The Art of Science Communication

by Stephanie Chasteen on March 2, 2010

I recently wrote a guest editorial for the American Physics Society’s Forum on Education newsletter, on my experiences as a science educator and communicator:

As a young physicist, I’ve had the immense good fortune to work with several expert communicators, like David Kestenbaum, to learn the best ways to bring science to diverse audiences. I realized in graduate school that I was more interested in helping people understand and appreciate physics, than in creating more physics myself. Those were back in the days of early global warming skepticism, and I was appalled at the general lack of trust and understanding of science. I wanted to do my part to change that. This article will tell you a bit about how I was able to get involved in science outreach, and the best practices that I’ve taken away from those experiences.
