The best science communicators spend their days sweating, straining, and trying to keep their balance as they climb up and down a wobbly ladder. They engage audiences by relating scientific concepts to concrete, visceral experience along what Canadian-born linguist Sam Hayakawa termed "the ladder of abstraction." Sometimes the task lies in communicating an intellectual concept through a down-to-earth illustration at the foot of the ladder. Other times, a personal experience...
