Science Communication Course at IMET

Twelve people stand in 2 rows at the bottom of a staircase smiling at the camera.On August 20-21 2018, Emily and Alex taught a science communication course for the graduate students at IMET in Baltimore, MD. This course not only introduced the students to science communication principals and best practices, but also included modules to learn Adobe software and apply that knowledge to the students' research. Their research ranged from striped bass and marine sponges to microplastics, with much of the work having real-world applications. Students enjoyed learning how to make their own symbols, and one student in particular created a new stingray symbol that will soon be incorporated into the IAN symbol library.
