SciComm 2020 Workshops

Two pre-conference workshops are being offered to targeted audiences of SciComm registrants: K-4 teachers and graduate students/postdoctoral faculty

Linking Literature and Science, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

Understand how to use children’s literature books to incorporate science and math lessons. We’ll explore several books and learn ways to engage children in science and math lessons presented in the books. Participants will learn about providing long-term science investigations for students while also gaining confidence in sharing science and nature with children.

Note: This workshop is open to educators. Space is limited so priority will be given to elementary teachers.

Registration info:
If you are an elementary teacher, you are invited to attend the Zoom workshop “Linking Literature and Science” by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, being held before SciComm 2020. About 30 participants can attend. The Google Form at the link below will be shut down when we have reached capacity.
The primary audience for this online workshop is K-4 teachers who are also registered for SciComm 2020.

Instructor: Lindsay Rogers

Submitting this form registers you for the workshop — but you will receive a confirmation email from Lindsay Rogers a few days before the conference with instructions for how to join.

Summing up your science, Doane University

This workshop will walk participants through the development of a “script”/elevator pitch for a 90-second video that will introduce themselves, their science, and unanswered questions in the field using accessible, jargon-free language. Participants will become familiar with the video platform Flipgrid that will be used to record the videos. Participants must bring an internet-enabled smartphone or tablet.

Registration info:
As a graduate student or postdoctoral faculty member or student, you are invited to attend a workshop on Flipgrid the week before SciComm 2020. About 30 participants can attend. The Google Form at the link below will be shut down when we have reached capacity.

Sunday, August 9
10 a.m. to noon, Central Daylight Time (Nebraska time zone)
Instructor: Dr. Ramesh Laungani, Doane University

This two-hour online workshop will walk participants through the development of a “script” for a 90-second video that will introduce themselves, their science, and unanswered questions in the field using accessible, jargon-free language. These videos will be available to participants for use in their own science communication efforts. Participants will become familiar with the video platform Flipgrid that will be used to record the videos.

Participants must have and use an internet-enabled smartphone or tablet during the session.
