3/13/15 Science Communication Workshop for faculty, post-docs, and grad students

STEM CORE and the Science Literacy Program are partnering to offer a free, two-day workshop on Communicating Science facilitated by faculty from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University. To apply for the May 14-15 workshop, please visit the Science Literacy Website

The workshop will provide attendees with training and communication tools to engage public audiences. In addition to media training, the sessions will include improvisation instruction intended to provide scientists with the skills to talk  freely, directly, and spontaneously about their work. An additional focus of the workshop is on distilling science messages.
