Graduate students! Interested in attending a science communication workshop FOR FREE

All-expenses paid for all those accepted to attend. Apply to ComSciConCan by January 19/20.

This is the only Canada-wide science communication training workshop designed for graduate students - and it is all-expenses paid for all those accepted to attend.

Are you interested in strengthening your ability to communicate your science to the general public?

Would you like to meet other graduate students across the country who are passionate about science communication?

Do you want to network with professionals to explore science communication in all its facets?

...and all for FREE? This is your opportunity!

ComSciCon is a series of workshops focused on enhancing communication skills and fostering an inclusive community that can effectively communicate scientific information to both academic and non-academic audiences. Created in 2013 by graduate students at Harvard University and MIT, over 500 graduate students have now benefited from learning the skills needed to communicate the often complex concepts within science, engineering and other technical fields to reach wider and more diverse audiences. ComSciCon has now come to Canada to empower the next generation of leaders in STEM fields across the country.

ComSciCon will launch its second event in Canada. This year's meeting will be held May 26th-28th, 2020 in Ottawa, Ontario and will be partly integrated with the Canadian Association for Science Centre's annual meeting. The conference is completely free of charge for selected attendees (travel [full or partial], lodging, and food will be provided).

The application deadline is 19 January 2022 and the application form is available here:
