communicating science: plane language?

Some people might've been surprised at the scientist who said she just wanted "to be able to tell the person next to me on the airplane what I do without having his eyes glaze over."  But she had plenty of heads around her nodding in the "Communicating Science" workshop I facilitated last week at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting.  Here's a story about that session on the AAAS website.  We've trained nearly 1,000 scientists in 12 workshops to date, and you can read more about the program here.  If you know a scientist who'd like to try the workshop, two more will be offered this spring, in Austin, Texas, and Boulder, Colorado.  The workshops are free, but pre-registration is required.
