Funded summer school in science communication


The STEAM Summer School provides training in science communication for university students, researchers, and educators, connecting science and art in science communication practice. The 10-day programme (13-22 July, 2016) at Rhine-Waal University (Dutch/German border) offers a unique experience in science communication training.

There is funding available for University of Edinburgh students. Deadline for application is Fri 29 April.

The programme covers the main aspects of science communication including journalism, social media, policy, management, arts, and science theatre. The workshop will be a fully immersive experience on science communication theory and practice, and no previous communication experience is required.

They aim to train science communication ambassadors eager to engage with various sectors of the public back in their home countries.
