The REU Science Communication Workshop encourages undergraduate research participants to explore the broader context of their research, and it guides them in developing and practicing professional science communication skills. Students gain confidence presenting their research and speaking about science in a variety of settings. The Workshop is effective with students pursuing any topic of research, not simply nanoscience.
The REU SCW Workshops were developed by the Museum of Science with support from the NSF Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (NSF EEC-0425826 & 08327785 ) headquartered at Northeastern University, the Mass Tech Collaborative, and the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center headquartered at Harvard University (NSF PHY-0646094). Production of this Guide and dissemination of the REU SCW have been supported by the NISE Network with funding from the National Science Foundation under Award Numbers 0532536 and 0940143.
