Recap of ComSciCon-San Diego

This week, ComSciCon – a science communication workshop by grad students for grad students – came to San Diego. Over two days, we enjoyed thought-provoking panels and talks on science communication, touching on topics like: how do we convey the uncertainty in science without teaching the public to be skeptical of researchers? What do we make of the current “edu-tainment” movement? And what is the role of social media in science communication? Attendees also worked with each other and with invited experts to hone their own work, whether abstracts for an academic paper, or a blog post. We ate, we talked, we admired the ocean from the 15th floor, and, luckily, we tweeted. Here’s a collection of some of the tweets that capture the energy from the workshop and highlight many of the impactful moments of ComSciCon-SD.
