Science should be a subject easily understandable by any person. Instead, we maintain very close groups of people discussing specific science subjects.
Making science information available for the lay audience does not mean to make fun videos or tricks. Any information translated into an easier way to comprehend complex data is good enough.
Nowadays, the best way to contribute to science communication is to explain it visually.
Science infographics or graphical abstracts are world widely used by many types of social media. However, not all scientists understand the importance of making their research available in a visual format.
