Remember what inspired you to get involved in science? Instill that same sense of wonder in others by sharing your research and your science with the broader world. Communicating with general audiences—from students to reporters to policy makers to other scientists—provides you with a perfect opportunity to explain why what you know matters. After all, understandable and exciting science is what encourages federal funding, public support, and new generations of scientists. On this site, AGU offers updated resources and tools to help you reach out to all audiences.

What are my peers doing?
Learn about a geologist who spent the summer writing newspaper stories, how you can share your research with teachers, and how to talk policy on the run. Or, do you have your own success story or “what-not-to-do” tips to share? Send them to us and we may include them here!
AGU offers numerous ways for its members to take science out of the lab or field and share it with the public. Whether you wish to discuss your science with policy makers, take part in educational outreach, act as an expert for the media, or share your work with fellow scientists, AGU’s Sharing Science Resources can help you broaden your impacts.
