The fun science adventures continue! I am just back from an productive and fun trip to Tasmania where I attended the International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences open meeting. The meeting was held in Hobart, Tasmania, a fantastic city that reminded me of my former home in Wellington, New Zealand.
In addition to presenting research from work at Lake Ohau, New Zealand, I lead an invited science communication session at the Ice Core Young Scientists (ICYS) workshop. The workshop focused primarily on science communication theory and some best practices. This workshop highlighted my work in the Science in Society research group at Victoria University of Wellington. Dr. Rhian Salmon and I co-taught a similar workshop at two NASA Science Communication courses held in August and September, 2015.
Below is a suggested reading list that I encourage participants (and every science communicator) to read. This is list was compiled by Rhian Salmon and myself. Please note, as with any active field of research, the theory, best practices and publications are constantly evolving. I will aim to update this list periodically. Have any suggestions of content to add? Contact me!
As with any good trip, you have to take some photos! Here are a few highlights of the IPICS meeting (and some post-meeting adventures).
