Science Communication Workshops & Fellowships - Science ATL

Science ATL Communication Fellowship

The Science ATL Communication Fellowship, sponsored by Emory University, is designed to help close the communication gap between scientists and the public. This professional development experience is open to Atlanta-area graduate students and post-docs from any institute of higher education. Topics covered during the fellowship meetings will include using narrative techniques in science communication, directing language for different audiences, and developing demonstrations and public programs related to the fellow’s field of study.

As participants in this program, Fellows will:

  • Join other trainees from different STEM fields to learn new communication strategies and practice using them in a neutral and non-threatening environment
  • Learn different techniques for effective communication with a range of audiences
  • Gain practical skills in science communication and public engagement

The Fellows will gain practical experience in the following:

  • Writing a science article for the public, promoted on Science ATL website, newsletter and social channels;
  • Giving a general audience short Science Cafe Talk;
  • Developing a hands-on activity/demo to share in an expo-style environment.

COVID SAFETY NOTE: Because all Fellowship meetings will be in-person and indoors, we require all Fellows to be vaccinated for acceptance into the program.
