Science communication is about taking what you know and love about the world and bringing it to new audiences. It's about building bridges and creating communities. It's about making yourself vulnerable so that others can share in the joy of scientific discovery. I'm excited to share these workshops and events at Princeton so that we get more scientists doing what they do best: exploring, experimenting, and sharing.
