ASCB members can apply for up to $1,000 to promote science outreach projects such as student lab visits, science fairs, or other ideas for engaging the public. These activities are organized by the ASCB Committee for Postdocs and Students (COMPASS).
As an expert in your field, you have the responsibility to communicate scientific concepts and be a resource for curious minds. In return, you will:
- Develop your ability to communicate complex ideas in a way that everyone can understand
- By getting out there and promoting science to the general community, you learn to talk to people from all walks of life
- Network across different disciplines, identities, and career stages, both within and outside the scientific community
