Science Communication 

Definition: "Science communication is the practice of using appropriate skills, media, activities, and dialogue to produce responses of awareness, interest, opinion-forming, understanding, or enjoyment about science (" I perform science communication in three ways:

1. I produce videos and social media post to help people incorporate science into their everyday decision making. (These can be found under the "Service" tab).

2. I give information literacy presentations to promote autonomy in being able to understand and evaluate different sources of information. These presentations are structured with a savvy science framework I developed to help people incorporate science when they form their opinions or make decisions. This five step process is: Recognize, Question, Answer, Connect with Decisions & Opinions. (These presentations can be found below).

3. I've developed a course for college-level undergraduate and graduate students called, "Science Communication for Students Studying Science", and have transformed that course into a hour workshop to help professionals communicate their work to the public. (The presentations for various audiences can be found below, details for the course I developed can be found under the "Teaching" tab.)

Science Communication - Information Literacy Presentation 


Savvy Science is a social impact initiative of mine to help people connect science to their everyday decision making. My goal is to improve science communication throughout the United States. One way I improve science communication through my initiative has been delivering information literacy presentations in K-12 schools, and to adults at different community events. My presentations look different depending on the audience. For children my goal is for them to become familiar on how to ask questions involving science. For teens my goal is for them to build fact finding habits, ask questions involving science, and incorporate science into their decision making. For adults my goals are the same as with teens except I also teach them how to incorporate science when they form opinions. Within my initiative, I define information literacy as how well each person can understand and evaluate different sources of information. Each of the presentations are activity driven. Below you will find three sets of presentations: Children, Teens, & Adults. Included below is the worksheet I have teens and adults fill out as well as a supplementary document,  both of which are available for download. Additionally, I've included additional resources on information literacy for anyone looking to acquire more information.
