ASCB offers a number of programs and grants to help
scientists with public engagement, including the Celldance video program, a
90-second Elevator Speech Contest, and both small and large grants.
Outreach, or public engagement, is the nexus between science education, communication, and policy. The common element of all outreach is engaging the general public in the world of science. Outreach can take many forms, from working with elementary school kids in science fairs, to art exhibitions on science, to hosting monthly science discussions in cafes for the general public.
