FAQs

What is science communication?

Science communication is the practice of informing, educating, sharing the excitement and applications of science, and raising awareness of science-related topics. Doing so helps engage people with science and the associated benefits and challenges. Science communication helps make scientific knowledge accessible to the people affected by it. Read more.

 

Why communicate science?

Science and technology underpin almost everything we do, but it can be lost in translation. Science communicators ensure that research is accessible beyond the academic field where it is published. At Scientell, we communicate science in ways that are accurate, interesting, succinct and friendly.

 

What does Scientell do?

Scientell distils technical and scientific information into an engaging format – such as stories (short form and long form), brochures, video, animations, infographics, audio, hands-on science activities, or through facilitating a workshop or conference.

We offer specialist communication advice, such as media strategies, media liaison, communication training, and editing, to maximise the impact of our client’s work.

 

Who does Scientell work with?

We have completed well over 100 successful projects for a range of clients. We have worked for government departments and authorities, universities, CSIRO, CRCs, scientific conferences, schools and science centres, academic organisations and societies, NGOs and business.
