Students and postdocs present activities for kids online through local science center
Meinig School students and postdocs presented activities for kids online at the Ithaca Sciencenter in May. Presentations were held live on Facebook at 10:30am through Zoom (recorded links below).
The presentations were organized alongside Sciencenter staff as part of a science communication workshop presented by Prof. Steve Adie as part of his NSF CAREER award and the Sciencenter’s NSF-funded Portal to the Public. The workshop was presented in two sessions with the Sciencenter staff. The first part consisted of a training session on science communication and hands-on activities to do with children. The second session consisted of designing and practicing a demo that later was modified for the virtual platform due to the pandemic.
Meinig School student presenters included Ph.D. students Rose Buchmann (Erickson Lab), Nancy Ruiz-Uribe (Schaffer Lab), and Lu Ling (Fischbach Lab), and postdoc Justin Liu (Adie Lab).
