ComSciCon is coming to Michigan!
ComSciCon-MI is a workshop designed to train and empower graduate students to communicate their research effectively to broad audiences. 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!
ComSciCon-MI is organized by graduate students at the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. Special thanks to UofM RELATE for their partnership and for running our "Fundamentals of Communication" workshop!
