PCST webinar for students interested in science communication

20 April 2021 at 11:00 GMT

PCST Network invites students interested in science communication to an online introduction to the worlds and words of science communication.

This will be in the form of a webinar, taking place at 12 noon BST (British Summer Time) on Tuesday, 20 April. The discussion will be guided by questions submitted in advance by those wishing to take part.

We invite questions that concern public communication of science and technology (PCST) as a set of concepts and practices, as national and international communities, and as a network that organises conferences.

The next PCST conference will take place virtually on 24-27 May, and this webinar will also be a guide to students (and other starters) in science communication, to help them get the best out of that conference.

Questions can be submitted at the PCST Facebook group.

The panel is: Germana Barata, science communication lecturer and researcher, State University of Campinas, Brazil; Anne Dijkstra, science communication lecturer and researcher, University of Twente, The Netherlands; Heather Doran, Public Engagement Manager, Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science, University of Dundee, Scotland; Brian Trench, PCST president (moderator).
