Join us for a Workshop on how to speak about science to non-scientists.

This is a large problem that a lot of scientists face: how to talk to people who don't understand science about science. We will focus on tips and tricks of how to talk about technical topics with people who have little official science training. Attendees will practice talking about their own work and common social science topics like health chemistry and energy chemistry.


Join us for FREE Lou Malnati's pasta and salad from 6:30-7pm.
Northwestern Lecturer Adjunct Jennifer Cline will be leading the workshop 7-9pm.

Jennifer has more than 20 years of professional experience writing and speaking about science. She teaches courses on science communication at Northwestern University. Jennifer has worked with scientists and business leaders from pharmaceutical and biotech companies, academics, and government officials involved in science and health care policy.


Register online by Monday, February 14th.
