Check out our first publication about Project Bridge here!
"When asked about the most important thing a scientist needs to know when interacting with the public, Daniel advised to keep the level of detail to a minimum so that people will still see the big picture. “Once they see the big picture, there needs to be some type of connection to their life — why does this matter? Why should I care? How does it affect me? Getting the public involved in the discussion only helps to better our own understanding and streamline our science.”
As with anything, practice makes perfect, and a natural starting place is with friends and family. Daniel suggests to “try explaining your science research with them, and see if they can explain it back to you. It’s always fun, and even if you make mistakes, you can keep trying. After all, it is how Project Bridge was formed!”
