Talk Nerdy To Me

In this Ted Talk, Melissa Marshall makes a plea to scientists and engineers to “talk nerdy.” She says, “we’re fascinated by what you’re doing. So tell us about it — in a way we can understand.” Use this video in the technical communication classroom to discuss definitions and descriptions. She nicely reinforces and can generate discussion about how to make complex ideas accessible and exciting to others.
