The Alda Center's Science Communication Boot Camp is intended for scientists – including faculty members, post docs and graduate students – who are eager to improve their skills in communicating science to the public. We teach flexible skills that are applicable to communicating with a range of people outside your own field, including students, funders, employers, policymakers, community members and scientists in other disciplines. This intensive week of training will include workshops from our foundational courses, as well as presentation skills which will be incorporated into a culminating activity at the end of the week.
