science, s’mores, and stargazing
Join us Nov 2-4!
Want to sharpen your science communication skills and learn how to tell compelling stories in new ways? Come join us in Southern California for an intimate weekend of workshops, networking, and socializing!
SciCommCamp offers a west coast-based camp-style retreat that brings science communicators and scientists of all career stages together for a weekend of networking and training. By spending time together outside of a typical academic or conference-style setting, participants are inspired to think about science communication in fresh and exciting ways.
Expand your scicomm toolbox
Brush up on your science communication skills and learn some new ones, participate in thoughtful discussions about the most important issues in the field, and network with your colleagues from the worlds of science and science communication. (And what camp weekend would be complete without some s’mores and stargazing??)
Check back soon for more specifics as the 2018 program shapes up!
