The COSEE NOW team along with colleagues Catherine Halversen (COSEE CA), Bob Chen (COSEE OCEAN), and Annette deCharon and Carla Companion (COSEE Ocean Systems) recently held a workshop for early career scientists called GEARS. The GEARS program is designed to help scientists effectively communicate the broader impacts of their work. The program offers a range of resources and information, including a storytelling workshop with Dr. Ari Daniel Shapiro. Rachel Shelly from FSU recently had an opportunity to apply what she learned in the development of a media piece focused on her research specialty phytoplankton and pollution. Please take a look and let us know what you think.
