Sharing Science Workshops for Graduate Students, Fall 2009

June 1st, 2010 | EVALUATION

The Museum of Science partnered with the Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing to create a sequence of professional development experiences in science communication and hands-on learning for graduate students and post-docs. The Sharing Science Workshops were intended to help graduate students who work with the CHN program to improve their abilities to present their research to a variety of scientific and nonscientific audiences. The sequence included a half-day "Sharing Science" workshop, a half-day guided "Practicum" with museum visitors, and optional participation in NanoDays events at MOS. The UMass Donahue Institute undertook an evaluation of the first two programs to better understand their impact. Appendix includes instruments.
