Good communication skills are critical not only for increasing public understanding of environmental science, but also for crossing disciplinary boundaries and helping to inform important societal decisions.

This workshop, to be held 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 12, PACCAR Building, Room 202, is designed for environmental scientists and students who would like to learn how to tailor their ideas and information for the general public.

This 2.5 hour workshop will be led by several award-winning faculty, including Scott Slovic from University of Idaho, and Peter Chilson, Linda Russo and Debbie Lee from WSU. Presenters will discuss of several models of powerful science writing and provide hands-on training in small groups to offer strategies for reaching non-scientists.
