Training: How to design a science workshop for a lay audience

The FNR is organising an interactive training session for researchers and science communicators, with tips and tricks on how to present research through fun, hands-on science activities. The sessions will take place on 6 and 13 July respectively.

**UPDATE 30 June: Both sessions are now fully booked!**

Science Festivals, Researchers’ Days, Open Days… There are numerous occasions on which the general public is invited to come and exchange with researchers. What defines a successful science workshop? How can you catch the public’s attention? How do you explain your research to a lay audience?

In this science communication training, we will present best practices of past events and give you ideas on how to communicate your work through fun, interactive and easily understandable workshops for the general public. The training is offered in German or French respectively.
