This overview of education, outreach and EDI in education and outreach addresses the points below:
1) Citizens’ attitudes to science and to scientists is overall positive, including as concerns trust in science and scientists. However, there is room for more engagement, especially regarding hearing directly from scientists.
2) Direct interactions with scientists have a measurable, positive impact on the public and on students. They increase the public’s engagement with science and awareness of science’s impact on society. For students, direct interaction with scientists improves their perception of and interest in science careers.
3) Effective education and outreach entails awareness of the range of diversity groups, how they intersect each other, and working with communities from the start of developing a project, valuing the knowledge and experience of diverse groups.
