University of Nebraska faculty who wish to improve their science communication and outreach skills should plan to attend the May 16 “Portal to the Public Workshop.” Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, so register now.

The “Portal to the Public Workshop” will be 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Lied Commons, 301 N. 12th St.

Led by University of Nebraska State Museum staff trained in informal science education, the workshop will leverage best practices from Portal to the Public to help scientists more effectively communicate their work to the public. Portal to the Public is a national organization dedicated to connecting public audiences with science in their own communities. Workshop attendees will participate in activities to build their communication skills, gaining strategies for developing future informal science education experiences and a certificate of participation.

The workshop is free and open to University of Nebraska faculty. A complimentary lunch will be provided.

For additional information, contact Tisha Mullen, director of proposal development, at  402-472-2894.
