Bring Science to the Public at Phipps

March 22 - March 24

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens seeks graduate students and other professionals in all fields of science and engineering to participate in a program designed to help scientists communicate their research effectively with the public.

Who can participate?

Graduate students or faculty engaged in scientific study, as well as professionals working in a science-related field. All fields of STEM are welcome!

What does the program entail?

  • Take part in a science communication workshop at Phipps. Facilitated by the research and science education department, this learning opportunity is designed to help you develop tools for communicating scientific concepts to the public.
  • Under current circumstances, the workshop will be offered in three virtual sessions that each focus on unique skills and background:
    • Part One: Jargon Management, Understanding Your Audience, Concise Messaging
    • Part Two: Concept Mapping, Storytelling, Interpretive Writing
    • Part Three: Strategies for Engaging the Public

After completion of all three training sessions, participants will have the chance to engage members of the public at a Meet a Scientist event at Phipps once public programming resumes on site.

What are the benefits of participating?

  • Work with informal education experts to develop your skills in communicating science to the public.
  • Network with colleagues from multiple disciplines who are equally committed to sharing their work with the public.
  • Share your work with a diverse public audience at Phipps.

Series 1: March 15 – 17 | 1 – 3 p.m. EST
Series 2: March 22 – 24 | 3 – 5 p.m. EST
