Communicating Science Gong Show
Sunday August 5th, 2018
you haven't joined us for a Gong Show before, here is what you can expect...
Our goal is to connect Colorado scientists with community members so that they
can learn about the amazing research being conducted in our state. This event
is also an excellent opportunity for researchers to practice their broad communication
do this, we encourage scientists to give a short elevator pitch that succinctly
describes what they do. If s/he uses too much jargon, goes off on a tangent, or
the audience gets bored, listeners can "gong" the presenter with
provided noise makers!
If you are "gonged": Don't panic! You won't get pulled of the stage by a hook; you will just have to stop and explain more clearly.
will have prizes, beer, and "celebrity" judges so get ready to share your most exciting scientific
Present your research to non-scientists in a way that is exciting and
No slides (you are welcome to bring props)
Jargon is ok as long as it is necessary and you define it well.

Special Poster Session January 19th, 2018
On January 19th, 55 early-career scientists representing 11 Colorado-based research institutions traveled to the Colorado State Capitol to present their research to the general assembly. This poster session was a celebration of the diverse and exciting research being performed in our state and inspired conversations surrounding the impact primary science research has on our local economic, physical, and social health.
