About the event.

It can be frustrating, as scientists, to try and explain our research to people. As scientists, we appreciate the value of our research and that of others. However, this isn’t incredibly obvious to most members of society, whether or not it lies in people’s best interests. Thus, we attempt to better inform people about scientific research through the medium of “science communication.”

In this workshop we will explore the complex nature of communicating ideas to a wide audience. We will focus on the language we use to communicate our research and then explore how best to cultivate an appreciation for (rather than a fear of) science.

Come prepared to learn, write, discuss and present your ideas in ways you might not previously have considered.

This workshop is part of the Genome 10K & Genome Science Conference 2017.
