Science Communication Series

Our Science Communication Series aims to diffuse science from the academic setting and advance the communication of science-related topics across disciplines and publicly to nonscientists.

Through events such as science cafe and public lecture, the Science Communication Series provides a platform for Brown faculty and students, and external professionals, to communicate their scientific work to broad audiences. Additionally, the series offers workshops, which provide a variety of training on communication skills like scientific writing, poster presentation, and use of visual media.
