Science Communication and Education Network (SCENe)

SCENe Workshop

Science Communication and Education Workshops

The Princeton Center for Complex Materials presents the Science Communication and Education Network Workshop Series.

  • 2 four-hour workshop sessions: April 20 & May 4, 2 to 6PM
  • 1 individual training session to plan and develop your own demo/final product
  • A face-to-face experience with a non-specialist audience (we offer several opportunities throughout, but they can also be from outside) and final reflection with us.

These workshops (provided for free to Princeton University researchers) are based in the “Portal to the Public” NSF-funded method, with group activities, discussions and lectures. All participants will receive feedback and time to reflect. After all the aforementioned requirements are met, participants will receive a recognition of participation issued by our office.

The purpose of this training will be for researchers to build on their communication skills and face-to-face interactions, increase their confidence while communicating their work and becoming part of a community of researchers that share an interest in science outreach and engagement. The first edition of this workshop was held in April 2017.

Registration for this program is now closed. Please check back in the coming weeks for SCENe Summer 2018!

These workshops are recommended to all Princeton University graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty and staff members in the sciences.
