Workshop prep: Arrive prepared

Workshop prep: Arrive prepared

Thanks for joining the fun!

We are very intentionally offering a ‘tapas’ style taster of different ways you could communicate your science, and there will be a strong emphasis on storytelling. We want you to walk away with a sense of the unique strengths of these different media for powering science communication, and to develop some sense of preference for what you might be interested in exploring more in the future.

Plan on having lots of fun, and trying lots of new things!

What you’ll need:

We’ll be sending a more detailed email to pre-registered participants by the end of the week. Meanwhile, here are a few things you’ll need to make the most of the workshop. Read more about Workshop prep: Arrive prepared
