      WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
      Scientists studying the Polar Regions who want to:
      € Learn strategies to communicate more effectively to diverse
audiences
      € Develop and engage in strong scientist-educator partnerships and
professional networks
      € Learn and practice communication skills

      PURPOSE ‹ WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
      Scientists are increasingly being asked to communicate the ³broader
impacts² of their work. Polar Interdisciplinary Coordinated Education
(ICE) is an interdisciplinary group of educators and scientists working
together to share scientific research from the Arctic and Antarctic with
educators and students. Our objective is to help scientists communicate
their research from the poles beyond their academic peers to the broader
community. Please join us for a hands on workshop featuring demonstrations
and discussions to address skills that include:
      €	Connecting with diverse audiences
      €	Deconstructing/decoding science for non-expert audiences
      €	The art of telling science stories
      €	Networking with the education and outreach community
