Deconstruct your Science to Win Friends and Influence People

COSEE NOW, in partnership with COSEE OS, COSEE West, and COSEE California, is pleased to offer the following opportunity for graduate students in Oceanography, Ecology & Evolution, and Environmental Sciences.

Join us on May 11th & 12th at Rutgers University’s Institute of Marine & Coastal Sciences for a workshop that will focus on how you can deconstruct your science so that it is utilizable by the public and colleagues outside your field. Students will have an opportunity to work with Drs. Oscar Schofield, Debashish Bhattycharya, Elizabeth Sikes, Jim Miller, and Lee Kerkhof to translate cutting-edge science topics. Attendees will also learn what the media, science museums, policy makers, and K-12 audiences might do with this information.

In this workshop you will:

  1. Learn and apply concept mapping skills to help you show the relation and context of your science with others and promote open ended discussions in your professional presentations
  2. Interact with policy makers, media specialists, museum & science center staff, and K-12 educators/administrators. Learn about their target audiences and how they would use your science.

To date, this panel of experts includes:

  • Ari Shapiro, Independent Radio Producer (confirmed)
  • Harold Clark, Kate Florio and Katie Gardner, Science Educators at the Liberty Science Center (confirmed)
  • Lauren Fraser, Principal at Bartle Elementary School (confirmed)
  • An environmental/science magazine editor (invited)
  • An environmental policy representative (invited)
