Communicating Science (Women in STEM event)

February 8, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Are you a researcher who wants to share your ideas with a wider audience? Come to this event to hear different ways to share a love of science with the public.  Three outstanding women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) will be looking at the benefits and drawbacks of various forms of science communication – teaching, reporting, and working at science outreach centres.

Three 15 minute talks will be followed by a Q & A and a chance to talk with the speakers after their presentations!
