SPIE Joins AAAS in Encouraging Members
July 31, 2008

The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) has declared its support for an appeal from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for its members to add their voices to the public dialogue on science and technology.

The AAAS has created resources to help scientists develop strategies for communicating effectively through its Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology. In conjunction with the National Science Foundation (NSF), the center created a new website and workshop initiative called “Communicating Science: Tools for Scientists and Engineers.” Online resources from this program include webinars, how-to tips for media interviews, strategies for identifying public outreach opportunities, and more.

AAAS has also called for a debate about science issues between the US presidential candidates as a way of bringing wider attention to the problem of funding for scientific research and education.
