The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science works to enhance understanding of science by helping train the next generation of scientists and health professionals to communicate more effectively with the public.
Master’s and PhD students from all fields of science, engineering and the health professions are welcome to take these unusual courses. These graduate courses are offered by the Stony Brook School of Journalism.
Improvisation for Scientists
Can playing improvisational theater games help scientists connect more directly and spontaneously with their audiences? The results look promising.
Workshops on the Road
We go on the road to offer presentations and hands-on workshops to help scientists communicate better, tailored to the needs of the groups that host us.
