This unique professional development experience will provide opportunities for participants to meet science communication experts from around lower Michigan and interact with other STEM graduate students passionate about science communication. Participants will also produce an original piece of non-technical writing through a write-a-thon and receive feedback from expert editors. 

As an added bonus, attendence is free to accepted participants and breakfast and lunch will be provided!
