The “Paths to Engagement” flowchart and guide were created to help those who know that they want to engage with non-scientific audiences but don’t exactly who the best audience is for them, or what type of engagement they’re looking for.

The guide includes specific contents and ideas on how to engage with different audiences:

Congressional Visits Day 
District Visits 
Call your legislator 
Write your legislator

Write an op-ed 
Use social media 
Give a public talk
Or do all this other stuff

Participate in a career day 
Judge a science fair 
Be a mentor 
Be a tutor 
Give a lab tour 
Take your science to the classroom 
Host a public event

Is your science newsworthy? 
Talk to a Public Information Officer 
Write a Press Release 
Give an interview
