Science communication is becoming popular in the science community. Yet scientists are straggling to communicate with the public. Therefore science communication can help them discover ways to communicate and get their message through their audience.

But becoming good communicator needs work. However, this goes for every speaker. Even the most charismatic talks were given after many hours of practice.

But for scientists, it may be a bit more difficult. Due to years and years communicating between them they became good only in conference talks. 

So we and anyone doing similar efforts in educating the public should try science communication. This training will help you by giving you tips on how to achieve your goals in sharing your science. 

The three principles of science communication 

In science communication, there are many points we should study and work on them. However, I am giving you the three most important ones that I understand are important as a no-expert on the matter:

  1. Body Language. You need to be confident or act confident so your brain finally realizes you are.
  2. Create good content. Storytelling is important to create content that your audience will understand and like. Storytelling is everywhere: marketing, education. But it is mostly important in science communication. 
  3. Media talks. Being interviewed in the media is an important practice in becoming a good communicator.

These three principles will help you to tell your part of your science story. In this episode the is much more information for you to explore. 

Science is not finished until it’s communicated. - Mark Walport
