Levels
Choose a giving level

$5

Enable our idea

You sympathize with our idea? Every little help counts.

$10

Encourage growth

Help students develop fist hand experience to communicate their knowledge outside their comfort zone

$15

Kindle motivation

Allow students to expose themselves to different skills. Sharing knowledge practices pushes a person to become better at what they do while allowing them to develop better insights on problem solving skills.

$20

Fuel new ideas

They say two heads think better than one. When different skills and experiences collide, eye-opening ideas and solutions emerge. The more students learn how to communicate their work, the more they will be exposed to see the same problem from different angles.

$50

Ignite science support

The more students learn how to effectively communicate their science to others, the more likely they will be to reach someone who will be interested in supporting their idea and taking it further. It could be in the form of collaborations or attention from governmental or private organizations.

$100

Promote communication

Scientist agree that communication with non-scientist is important. However, this is a difficult skill that many practicing scientists lack, likely due to the combination of increased specialization over time and the absence of formal training in science communication.

$200

Invest in the future

Help develop interesting and innovative ways of communicating complicated concepts to the public

$500

Infuse communication training

As scientists advance in their academic careers from undergraduate to graduate student to postdoc, they become more and more specialized in their chosen discipline or sub-discipline. These sub-disciplines are increasingly disparate, requiring scientists to become better communicators to forge collaborations between disciplines
