There is an ever-increasing need for scientific, medical and technological information to be made available to any and all who may benefit.

At CPAS we run a range of teaching and learning programs designed to facilitate this democratic access to science, by training students to be excellent communicators and to gain deep insight into the contexts in which science communication takes place.

We offer teaching and learning experiences for students at professionals at all levels:

We broaden the education that ANU science students gain at university through our undergraduate courses, which teach communication skills and give context to students’ scientific understandings. Undergraduate science communication students are also eligible to win a number of prizes in science communication.

Our postgraduate research students investigate the communication of particular scientific topics and the ways that people in the general community engage with these.

With Questacon we train Master of Science Communication Outreach students to take science performances to rural and regional Australia in the travelling Shell Questacon Science Circus.

We offer postgraduate training in theoretical and practical aspects of science communication through our Master of Science Communication and Graduate Certificate in Science Communication degree programs.

Scientists and science teachers also receive training in communicating and demonstrating science in our short courses.
