Education and Outreach

Edwards, Molly [1].

From basics to broader impacts: lessons learned from years of YouTubing.

Broader impacts and outreach have become increasingly valued components of funding proposals, leading to innovation and creativity in how scientists are sharing their work. At the same time, finding the balance between initiatives that are impactful and those that are feasible has become more difficult. Fortunately, there is a thriving community of science communication experts ready and willing to collaborate with academics to help avoid reinventing the outreach wheel with each new grant proposal. I’ll take a tour through the current scicomm landscape and discuss the ins and outs of effective outreach, drawing on my experience creating, hosting, and funding my YouTube channel, Science IRL (In Real Life). I hope you’ll come away with collaborative and creative ideas to bolster your next broader impacts section.
