  Abstract: We probably all agree that the public should know something about the nature and value of scientific research. Through outreach and education activities, scientists can communicate understandings of the natural world and how we come to those understandings. The setting could be a library, lecture hall, museum floor, or even a book store. The experience should build understandings and relationships. The approach should involve engagement and when possible exploration. We discuss several activities for the general public from the particle physics community.
