Science Communication Workshops

In March 2021, I hosted a workshop, “Using Art to Communicate Science” at The Nature Conservancy’s Global Science Gathering.

I was quite nervous because this is the first time I created and led a workshop by myself. However, I tested the prototype workshop with my dearest friends at the Humphries Lab. I got great advice that improved the direction and content of the workshop.

At the actual workshop, it was humbling and inspiring to see everyone’s sci-comm sketches and discussions. As a junior scientist, I was awestruck by the fact that everyone followed my instructions and tips and really pushed the boundaries of creativity and comfort zones.

Due to the success of the sci-comm workshop at the Global Science Gathering, I was invited by The Nature Conservancy Indonesia (YKAN) to host the same workshop for the Indonesia team.

More than 50 people showed up (and stayed). It was such a humbling and exhilarating experience. Despite leading the workshop at 10 PM EST, I felt so energized at the end.

Please let me know if you’d like me to host a similar workshop!
