Dr. Sarah Horst is a planetary scientists specializing in planetary atmospheres. She will be visiting both DGS and UTIG and giving a talk at UTIG on Friday March 8th at 10:30am.
During her visit, she will facilitate a Bystander Intervention workshop on March 8th at 1:30 in the Barrow Conference Room on the 4th floor of JGB. This type of training will assist you in being able to identify and assist those who are being harassed by others. I've heard from folks who have done this that it has been really empowering. Pleases send an email if you would like to attend that session.
Scientists are regularly asked to share their research in informal settings throughout their careers: a classroom, a museum, a science center, a public conference. But engaging the public to really understand sometimes complex notions does not necessarily come naturally. This workshop pairs participants with experts from improvisational theatre and Informal Science Education so that participants can gain the tools and insight needed to better communicate their own research with a public of all ages and backgrounds. Part of the workshop will introduce participants to these tools using the Portal to the Public program. In addition, tools borrowed from improv will be used to help participants understand group dynamics, tell stories, and say yes in the face of the unknown.
This workshop is beginner-friendly and free to anyone within the Jackson School of Geosciences.
Lunch and coffee provided!
