What is Science Communication?

This Catalyst article explores where Science Communication came from, how it has grown and why it has an important role to play in helping people to learn about science.

On one level Science Communication is about communicating science and building bridges between the people involved in scientific research and different groups of the public. But Science Communication is much more than just communicating science. Science Communication is involved in developing government science policies, understanding relationships between ‘the public’ and ‘scientists’, and creating science stories in the mass media, as well as exploring how people learn about and engage with science.
