Telling Your Story at MIT

Telling Your Story workshop
Most scientists are accustomed to presenting their research to colleagues or lecturing college and graduate students. But if asked to speak in front of a classroom full of elementary or junior high school students, or to a group at an informal institution, many scientists feel less comfortable. COSEE New England, together with TERC, has designed a workshop to help scientists develop skills for working with K-12 teachers and informal educators, called Telling Your Story. Workshop participants learn skills that translate into successful classroom visits as Telling Your Story helps scientists communicate more effectively with both teachers and students. COSEE New England is pleased to be able to offer the next Telling Your Story at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Telling Your Story will help:

  • Scientists, engineers, and technologists learn to construct stories that communicate both their research and their passion for their research
  • Formal and informal educators connect with scientists and learn how to plan a successful visit
  • Administrators learn how their school’s collaboration with scientists can invigorate teachers and increase students’ engagement, understanding, and achievement in science
  • Facilitators and education and outreach staff learn how this workshop can be a powerful addition to their outreach efforts as they help scientists achieve broader impact in public education

Join us! The workshop is free and includes lunch. Pre-registration is required, as seats are limited and we seek a balance of scientists and educators.
