Situation #1: Peer Review -- Scientists talking to other Scientists; Making Science Research More Accessible: Poster Sessions [KABT Miniposters]
Situation #2: Informal Science -- Scientists telling science stories Common sources: Blogs, science magazines, newspapers, etc. Documentaries Social Media Why students like this: Narrative… Drama… Fewer long latin words
Situation #3: Community Outreach -- Scientists talking as experts to an audience “A scientist seen is a scientist trusted” Be/Become someone’s “BROADER IMPACTS”! Citizen Science Projects (Scistarter, YourWildLife, IMP, Great KS Tardigrade Hunt, BioBlitz) Professional Society Meetings (KHS Field Trips) Skype/Google+ Hangouts/FaceTime/FacebookLive Social Media: Tweet-ups; #SciStuChat; #NGSSchat; #citsci; #edvines/#6secscience The ultimate goal in my room: Students as the experts
