ComSciConCAN - Free national graduate student science communication workshop

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 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 first event in Canada on July 18-20th, 2019 at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario. The conference is completely free of charge for selected attendees (travel, lodging, and food will be provided).

The application deadline is April 8th and the application form is available here:
