IAP Course - nanoStories: Workshop on science communication at the nanoscale

Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 2:30pm

Virtual Event

Designed for students with an interest in science communication and STEAM outreach. Guided by instructors, in each two-hour class students will explore a new topic, jointly developing an instructional narrative to be told in text, video, and/or interactive multimedia. Outside of MIT labs, nanoscience and nanotechnology appear mysterious. Help us demystify them! The content of the classes will reflect research/exploratory interests of participants.

Instructors: Prof. Vladimir Bulovic, Director of MIT.nano; Dr. Annie Wang, Research Scientist; and Samantha Farrell, Administrative Assistant; and special guest speakers from MIT.nano, the MIT News Office, PBS Nova and TedX Boston. 

Tuesday & Thursday starting January 4 and ending January 20 (Jan. 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20).

2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Registration deadline: January 3, 2022. Open to MIT community, limited to 60 participants. To receive course credit (optional), register for 6.S090 (U, 6-units).
