“The program gives you a new way of seeing science… and yourself.”
Carolyn Brown, Science Communications alumnus
Working with some of the world’s leading science communicators, participants explore the creativeuse of words, images, action and technology, 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.
