Social media has become an important tool in a scientist’s arsenal. It is a place to brainstorm and share ideas, make complex research accessible to the public, and carve out a niche as an expert in their respective fields. But, in a sea of misinformation and a crowded social media landscape, how can scientists leverage social media to achieve their goals?

Join us during Science Literacy Week on September 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST for: Let’s Get Social: Leveraging Social Media for Science.

TED talk-style presentations will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by internationally acclaimed American educator and molecular biologist Dr. Raven Baxter. This workshop will explore concrete ideas to combat misinformation, further a research career, educate and inform the public about issues you are passionate about, and more.
