Science Communications 2012
Program dates: August 11, 2012 - August 25, 2012
Application deadline : Extended from March 30, 2012 to April 30, 2012
Working with some of the world’s leading science communicators, participants explore the use of print, visual, and social media, as well as other communication formats, with the goal of fostering a more engaging role for science in public culture.
This is an immersive residency experience that is uniquely aimed at mid-career professionals in both science and communications. The program is structured around daily seminars and workshops on new forms of creative science communications. Emphasis is on group discussion and work, and participants will be urged to create outside their usual medium of scientific communication. At the end of the program, participants publicly present collaboratively created group projects using media such as the web, television, print, and three-dimensional scenarios that have developed under the influence of debates, visits, talks, and one-on-one dialogues.
