Are you a faculty member, graduate student, or post-doc interested in sharing your research with the general public? Become a Science Communication Fellow! The U-M Museum of Natural History uses the NSF-supported Portal to the Public guiding framework to bring scientists and public audiences together in face-to-face interactions that promote
appreciation and understanding of current scientific research.
To become a Fellow, scientists participate in two free professional development workshops focused on building the skills to effectively engage public audiences. With guidance from museum program staff, Fellows develop meaningful, inquiry-based and materials-rich table-top activities that showcase their research then share these activities with K-12 students and the public at two or more outreach events.
Workshop One: How People Learn – Wednesday, January 30, 2019, 5-8PM
Brainstorming Session (optional) – Friday, February 8, 2019. 3-5PM
Workshop Two: Prototyping Your Activity – Friday, February 22, 2019, 2-5PM
Fellows facilitate their activities for school groups and/or general public during two of the following Scientist Spotlight events:
