Workshop One: Communicating Science to Other Scientists
Has your PI ever asked you to present at a lab meeting? Are you currently preparing for a conference or symposium?

We will discuss conference presentations, both oral and poster format, and give you the opportunity to outline the story you want to tell about your own research.

Workshop Two: Communicating your Research in 5 Minutes or Less!
There are many situations in which you might need to talk about your research, but not have a large amount of time to do so. For instance, while presenting a poster at a conference, describing your research experiences at a networking event or job interview, or even talking about what you’ve been working on with a non-scientist family member or friend. Join CBS Undergraduate Research Coordinator Dr. Jacob Moore and learn how to compose a short “elevator speech” for multiple audiences, using results from your own research experience.

Date: Wednesday, March 21
Time: 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Location: MCB 2-120
