Presenting Theoretical Research to Astronomy Societies
Many astronomy societies are focussed on observing the sky rather than theorizing about it. Consequently, visiting lecturers who discuss theoretical astrophysics may struggle to motivate their audience. Here, I will present strategies to improve this connection, particularly for a diverse society membership. Further, the monthly attendance at society lectures may vary significantly. Hence, I will suggest ways in which the lecturer can remain flexible and adaptable regardless of the attendance.
