Workshop Curriculum

Learn how to write an engaging, jargon-free elevator pitch geared towards a non-scientific audience.  Through a variety of hands-on activities, workshop participants will practice using storytelling and analogies to distill complex scientific information in a way that is both interesting and understandable. Each participant will then use the tools taught in the workshop to write a 60-second elevator pitch that will be presented to the group.
