Graduate students in the Research Triangle are invited to apply for the 2019 ComSciCon-Triangle Communicating Science Workshop. The workshop is designed to empower STEM graduate students to communicate the concepts in their field and beyond to diverse audiences. The application deadline has now been extended to Feb. 15.

Graduate students conducting research in science, technology, health, mathematics, and related fields are invited to apply for ComSciCon-Triangle 2019, a science communication workshop organized by and for graduate students in North Carolina.

At this two-day conference, attendees will have the opportunity to develop their science communication skills, network with fellow graduate students passionate about science education and outreach, learn from expert writers and professional science communicators, and produce an original writing for publication.
