Scientific literacy remains low among the U.S. adult population, resulting in an ever-growing divide in our society. C2ST wants to change that. This Chicago Ideas Week Lab is all about how to communicate complicated material in digestible chunks that expand understanding and facilitate more productive conversations. Through a series of collaborative exercises and activities, C2ST will demonstrate how good public speaking can elevate the effectiveness of your communication strategies. Bring an engagement initiative unique to your goals and by the end of this Lab you’ll have a fully formed plan for how to articulate your message with success.
