making science communication a conversation

Fill out the Sense About Science survey!

Sense About Science USA is collecting data using a short survey about early-career researchers and their views about their roles as communicators. They've reached out to RELATE to help collect data - if you don't mind sharing your perspectives for 5 minutes, they'd really appreciate it! More info below.


Dear colleagues,

We invite you to take a short, 5-7 minute survey from Sense About Science USA. Many early career scientists participate in outreach and communication activities geared toward engaging with non-scientists. We would like to better understand how and why graduate students, post-docs, and early-career scientists participate in such public engagement activities. Please share the link to this survey ( with your colleagues—feel free to post on listservs or send to relevant groups. We ask that you refrain from sharing on social media, as we want to prevent “troll” and “spam” responses and ensure that the results are true to the group.

Thank you,
Neda Afsarmanesh
Deputy Director
