Write a guest post for the SciComm Hub Blog!

Are you interested in science writing? 

Would you like to share an experience, event, or story of your own related to SciComm?

The SciComm Hub Blog is accepting posts about any topic related to science communication, education or outreach, and about careers in these fields. Suggested topics include:

  • How you became interested in science education/outreach/communication
  • A SciComm program or event you participated in - what was it like? What was good and could use improvement?
  • Success stories from scientists who found SciComm careers
  • Your thoughts on the field of SciComm in general

We will advertise all blog posts heavily to the SciComm community - this could be a great way to work on your science writing and get some exposure and recognition for your writing.

If you would like to write a post, please email us a brief pitch at info@scicommhub.com. If you have your own blog already and would like to cross-post on the Hub Blog, that's great too!

Share your research with Byte of Science!

The Hamed Mirzaei Foundation for Arts & Sciences believes science and research findings should be available to everyone. To accomplish this goal, they have initiated a Youtube channel called “Byte of Science”.  This channel features short, 20 min long chit-chats with scientists and other experts where they discuss their projects and scientific interests for a general audience. 

If you are interested in featuring your work on the Byte of Science channel, please write to us at Contact@hamedmirzaei.org or call Hamed directly at (813) 503-1163.


Give an informal science talk!

There is a growing number of groups organizing scientific talks for a general audience, many of which occur in relaxed environments such as bars or coffeeshops. Consider applying to give a talk, or starting your own group in your city! Selected groups follow. If you have a group you'd like us to list, please email us.
