Why hire out?
As a scientist, you already wear lots of hats: researcher, teacher, mentor, writer, committee member, and advisor.
In addition, many grants now require you to develop and implement your own outreach campaigns, adding "film producer," "blogger," or "podcaster" to that already-long list.
Consequently, we have seen many outreach campaigns fail to launch or merely limp along, due to researchers’ lack of time, lack of training, and often lack of interest in science communication. Even the best outreach intentions often fail to meet their full potential because of time and skill constraints.
We propose a different model for outreach: hire us to develop, implement, and track your media campaigns.
Why Impact Media Lab?
We are scientists too! We know the passion and rigor that goes into a data point. We understand the constraints and funding systems in place. We recognize the beauty of a well-performing model, an eloquent experiment, a rare behavioral trait, a causal link between phenomena. We. totally. get it.
But our passion lies in communicating these awesome stories to the broader public, in developing outreach campaigns that change peoples’ lives, in sharing scientific findings in ways that move and inspire non-scientists.
Let us focus on our passion (telling your story), so that you can focus on your passion (doing your science).
