Science Communication Workshops

Metcalf Institute partners with a wide range of organizations to develop customized workshops for scientists, public affairs staff, and other science communicators. This approach is exemplified by Climate Change in Narragansett Bay: What’s the Story? a workshop created to help researchers, educators, journalists, and others gain new collaborators, skills, and ideas for developing compelling stories about the impacts of climate change to engage broader audiences. Metcalf also designs workshops for targeted audiences, such as non-profits, who seek specific types of communication training. Get in touch to discuss a workshop that meets the needs of your group!
