Excellence in research is one component of being a modern scientist. The ability to communicate complex research to the public is also essential not only for the practical application of results but also for breaking down barriers between scientists and the public. Phipps is proud to meet the needs of the scientific community and One Health One Planet conference attendees with this interactive science communication workshop. Learn ways to broaden your impact, control your research message, and connect with community members, maybe even help to inspire the next generation of scientists and science enthusiasts. 

The workshop will include the following sessions:

I. The Complexity of Exchanging Information — Exploring What We All Bring to the Communication Table

II. Creating a More Accessible Message

III. Preparing for Meaningful and Impactful Science Engagement

IV. Share Your Own Science Story — Building Bridges and Making Connections

Workshop tickets can be added to your order when registering for the conference or purchased by existing registrants as a stand-alone order. Tickets are $50 for general admission or $25 for students (students must present current student ID at workshop). A catered lunch will be provided.

Phipps’ Science Communication program originated from a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant awarded as a part of the Portal to the Public Network through the Pacific Science Center.

Note: this is a separate event from Phipps’ regular Science Communication Workshop offered twice a year. This condensed workshop does not include the requirement to participate in a Meet a Scientist Saturdays and will feature specific examples relevant to the theme of One Health One Planet.
