Heather Galindo, COMPASS

Making Your Science Relevant

 Thursday, November 20th

 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

 Room MCML 258

 Everyone welcome!

Abstract

In this short, hands-on workshop you will learn to distill your research down to its core elements and talk about it in clear, lively terms. Starting with a tool called the Message Box, you will develop the basic ingredients that you can use to create a 30-second elevator speech of what you do and why it matters, along with the elements you need you turn a mere description into a compelling story. Come ready to roll up your sleeves and up your communication game based on feedback from your peers!
