Project Bridge was founded at Johns Hopkins University in February 2013.
The mission of Project Bridge is to foster public interest in primary science research. As scientists, we often find it difficult to express the excitement and importance of our work to our non-science family and friends. This communication barrier is also reflected in the current dour funding climate for primary research projects. As such, we believe that conscious efforts must be made to create new advocates for science research. Project Bridge holds workshops for scientists to strengthen communication skills. We also utilize a grassroots approach to address these issues through our multiple community events. This increased interaction between researchers and their community will increase the appreciation and understanding of the importance of scientific research.
Project Bridge Colorado was the second chapter of Project Bridge created in March 2017.
