At AGU we are committed to providing our members with opportunities to share their science with a variety of audiences—and to giving hands-on support and resources for that communication. We can best do this if we know what our members are doing and what their experiences are.
If you have talked about your science with the public, media, legislators, K-12 audiences, or others, please take five minutes to share your experience with us. Below are stories about what you’re peers are doing and yours could be included next!
