Brookhaven Lab Science Communication Workshop for Summer Students

Brookhaven Lab’s Media & Communication Office will be offering a Science Communication Workshop for summer students on Thursday, July 28. You’ll come away from these sessions with tools to help you describe your research to family members, fellow students, future funders, and the media.

WHEN: Thursday, July 28th, 10 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.

PLUS choice of two afternoon hands-on sessions (registration required)


WHERE: Brookhaven Lab Berkner Hall Room B

Optional suggestion: Prior to the workshop you might want to think about some ways to describe your research to someone who knows nothing about it. Bring your ideas or jotted notes and we’ll help you expand on those ideas at the session!ng>

Weekly Safety Tip
Impacts of long weekends or extended holidays

The study of human performance shows that the first day back from a long weekend or extended holiday is an error-likely day. Take some time to reorient yourself and staff to help everyone get his or her head back in the game. Awareness of error-likely days and error traps helps us prevent accidents.
