Reporting on summer research
Posted by Melissa on September 16, 2011
At many campuses, including Carleton, during the fall term, science students are encouraged to present their summer research to the wider community, either in brief oral presentations or as part of a poster session. To that end, I’ve been reviewing resources on communicating science to share with students. Some are old standbys, like Rick Reis’ Chronicle article that provides samples of two sentence elevator pitches, while others are new additions to my collection, such at the recent article from The Scientist, “Poster Perfect,” about how to create effective scientific posters. What are some of your favorite articles/blog posts/podcasts about science communication that you think would be helpful to students as they prepare to present their summer research results on campus this fall?
