The RIS4E SSERVI Team and experts from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science a world-renowned leader in the field of science communication, will facilitate a (free!) Science Communication Workshop on Sunday, July 19 at NASA Ames, right before the SSERVI
Exploration Science Forum. The Alda Center has helped hundreds of scientists around the country improve their communication skills and are in high demand by universities and professional agencies nationwide, including NASA’s Office of the Chief Scientist.

This one-day workshop is designed to help scientists learn to connect with different audiences and to convey the meaning of complex material in vivid, clear language so those audiences can understand.
