During the first week of the Nano Envi Summer Camp both students and teachers attended workshops that are going to help them throughout their journey as part time researchers. One of these workshops was given by Dr. Liz Diaz, one of CIRE2N's CoPI. She did a presentation on how to communicate science effectively, being a researcher and a communicator herself. The workshop was very dynamic. Dr. Diaz created activities that made it possible for students and teachers to understand what she means when she says science can be accesible to all through the act of effective communication. #NSFfunded [...]
