Summary

This document stresses the problems involved in communicating science to the public; some suggestions, however, are discussed that have proved successful in this task. Television is cited as a good medium to present the scientist as someone other than the usual stereotype. Advice is given on how to present science to the public via television. The need for improved public relations with the non-science public is discussed. A description is given of efforts by the American Chemical Society to improve their relations with the public. Their news releases and the book, "What's Happening in Chemistry," both of which are aimed at communicating technical material to the non-scientist, have been successful. (CS)
