If you're among the scientists and science communicators heading to San Diego next month for the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting, check out a special workshop taking place on Sunday, February 21 from 2-3pm. Science Through the Lens: A Digital Journalism Partnership of the National Science Foundation and NBC News will train scientists and engineers to use hand-held cameras to communicate their research "in an effective and compelling manner." Communicators, it's a great way to get your scientists aware of and involved in providing audio and video you can use to share their research with public audiences. Want to give your scientists a double-dose of communications skills? I'll be facilitating another of the AAAS-NSF sponsored "Communicating Science" workshops (pre-registration required) at the meeting on Thursday, February 18.
