Science Sketches…the two minute challenge!
Effective communication of research is a crucial skill for individual scientists and is essential for successful public engagement in science. The website www.sciencesketches.org was founded to empower scientists to communicate and promote their research in an easily digestible format to the public, funders, journalists, the government, and other scientists. With just a few hours of work, you can generate a 2-minute video to convey the big-picture message of your science. Join us to get started on creating a video of your own!
Course capacity: 48
Fee: NONE! Come learn how to sketch your science!
**This workshop kicks off the first ever myCHOICE Sketch Your Science competition where the grand prize for your 2 minute video is a hefty $500! You don’t have to attend the workshop in order to enter the competition, but attending will certainly give you a leg up on those who don’t. Learn more here.
