FREE Science Communication Workshop for MSU Grad Students, Faculty, & Staff w/ Dr. Amber Ismael
- Friday, November 30, 2018 from 9:00am to 4:00pm
- Museum of the Rockies - view map
How well can you describe your work to a middle school student, or a retired airline pilot, or your neighbor? Join us to brush up on your science communication skills in a fun and interactive setting. We’ll explore why science communication is important and practice a variety of strategies for communicating about complex scientific topics in ways that are accessible and engaging to non-experts.
For over a decade, Pacific Science Center’s Science Communication Fellowship Program has been helping science-based professionals in the Seattle area have meaningful and effective conversations about their work with members of the public.
The NASA-funded Northwest Earth and Space Science Pipeline (NESSP) project seeks, in part, to extend the reach of these training efforts into other areas of the region so that more youth can benefit from personal interactions with STEM professionals. Help to inspire tomorrow’s scientists by improving the way you communicate with them today.
This workshop will be led by Dr. Amber Ismael of the Portal to the Public department at Pacific Science Center. As a cell biology researcher, Amber recognized the importance of effective science communication and outreach. She is excited to leverage her background to bridge the communication gap between scientists and their communities to foster public interest in science.
Cost: Free to MSU graduate students, faculty, & staff. Lunch and snacks are provided.
