Why is science communication important to you personally?
I believe that effective science communication is necessary for conducting good science. As scientists, we should strive to use our research to improve society, the environment, and the world around us as a whole. Our science cannot have an impact on people if they are unable to understand it! Scientific papers can be confusing, full of difficult-to-understand details and technical jargon. By successfully communicating our research in more digestible ways, we can make it accessible to a wider and more diverse audience and broaden its impact!
