Science communication workshop for students this summer

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

We are excited to invite Chicago-area graduate students to apply for the
Communicating Science (ComSciCon-Chicago) workshop, to be held at Northwestern
University's Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center on the weekend

of August 6th-7th, 2016. The ComSciCon workshop series
http://comscicon.com> is designed to empower graduate students to
communicate the complex concepts arising in science, engineering and other
technical fields to diverse audiences.

We have a stellar program of events planned for the two full days of the
workshop. Attendees will interact with fellow graduate student leaders in
science communication, learn from expert writers and communicators
including journalists, communication researchers, and scientists, and will
produce original writing for publication.

The application for the workshop http://goo.gl/forms/0D5bppwGTd> is now
open and will close at 11:59pm on May 1st (application link:
http://goo.gl/forms/0D5bppwGTd http://goo.gl/forms/0D5bppwGTd>). There
will be no cost or fee to graduate student attendees, but only a limited
number of spots are available. Attendees will be selected through a
competitive application process.

ComSciCon-Chicago is organized by graduate students from Northwestern
University and The University of Chicago.

This workshop is generously supported by Northwestern University's The
Graduate School, McCormick School of Engineering, Interdisciplinary
Biological Sciences Program, Department of Chemistry, Department of Civil &
Environmental Engineering, Plant Biology & Conservation, the UChicago
Dean's Council, and the Chicago Biomedical Consortium.
