This session will begin with a brief review of the context and importance of science communication in today’s information-saturated world. Science communication tips and tools will be covered and IGERT trainees will put their communication skills to the test by creating short “elevator speech” videos on their smart phones. Resources with more information and science communication opportunities will be distributed.
