In July and August of 2020, TESI, iDigBio, and the Florida Museum partnered to produce Science & Me, a science communication workshop for UF students and early career postdocs in the sciences. This six-week-long workshop was offered virtually through Canvas and Zoom, and included both synchronous and asynchronous content. Participants received training in science communication techniques and story development, and then used those skills to produce short videos that shared their journey to becoming a scientist. Scientists identifying as minority, first-generation, and other underrepresented groups in the sciences were especially encouraged to take part in the workshop
Science & Me was funded by the University of Florida’s Creative B Summer Program.
