About Science Matters

Nothing in science has
any value to society if it is
not communicated.

- Anna Roe -

Science Matters is an agency with a broad expertise in written and oral science communication, training, stakeholder outreach and public engagement.

We arm scientists with the skills to communicate science more effectively to a variety of audiences, media to more accurately cover science topics, museums with the development of educational science experiences, and scientific companies with their storytelling.

Our main assets are our ability to understand and translate science and technology to inform, spark debate, or connect different stakeholders.
