Spring Brings Communicating Science Adventures

Here at the Center for Communicating Science, we believe in communication that is personal, direct, spontaneous, and responsive.  What happens when we're advised to stay home, teach remotely, and practice "social distancing"? Like everyone on campus and beyond, we get creative! We look at it as an experiment in communication; we postpone, cancel, strategize, adapt; and we do our best to keep on with our work while responding to the needs of our communities.

We'll keep this list of spring events updated:
