Stories are the best way to communicate science to any audience – from friends and family to colleagues and funders. We’ll teach you the basics using methods developed with hundreds of scientists, and give you opportunities to practice and cultivate this crucial skill.
You’ll become a better scientist, too. Research shows learning to communicate science helps scientists write better theses.
Being taught to think about science from the vantage of a storyline has been really helpful, both in my writing and at the bench as well.
Johns Hopkins University
We’ll help you bring your expertise and skills to new communities – from online readers to policymakers, patients, journalists, and beyond.
Exciting news, a university press editor reached out to me after seeing the hype about my Massive animal research article... and now I'm writing a book proposal for a short book on advice for young neuroscientists 😎
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
At the end of September, my second article for Massive went up…A couple weeks later, on a Friday night while I was enjoying unwinding from a long week of experiments, I was contacted by a young BBC radio producer asking if I’d like to be interviewed live on their radio program.
The Scripps Research Institute
We’ve created a unique space where researchers from across disciplines and around the world can connect to discuss how to move science communication forward.
You’ll love the community. More than 90% of members say they would recommend us to friends.
This is one (more) amazing thing about Massive and why you should join. So many great scientists from different fields working together gives us all a chance to learn stuff (and read papers) we'd never otherwise come across in our professional careers.
We started Massive with a mission to help scientists and the public understand each other. Scientists are among the most trusted members of society, but their work isn't getting through to the public because they lack the institutional buy-in, narrative communication skills, and platforms to compete for attention in the crowded modern media landscape. If scientists were able to break through, they might be able to drive society and policy in productive directions, because scientific curiosity is one of the few traits that cuts across the political spectrum. We’re building the training, community, and media platform to help scientists drive society forward.
