I’m a Stanford Graduate Student or Postdoc

Are you a Stanford graduate student or postdoc interested in combining community outreach with a chance to share your research? We’re exited to be bringing GenerationSci back for its third installment in Spring 2020! The dual goal of the GenerationSci Conference is to expose community college students to a broad range of STEM topics and train Stanford scientists to effectively communicate their work to an interested non-expert audience through a short talk or an infographic poster.

Check back in January 2020 for workshop schedule and in February 2020 for conference details. In the meantime, feel free to explore past GenerationSci presentation abstract archives.

Get Involved in GenerationSci 2020

Lay Science Talks

We invite Stanford graduate students, postdocs, and other researchers to submit an abstract for a short talk at GenerationSci 2020! Join us for an abstract writing workshop, hosted by the Dish on Science, to get started. If selected, you will work with the Stanford Hume Center for Writing and Speaking to develop a short presentation to share with community college students at GenerationSci.

Infographic Posters

We invite Stanford graduate students, postdocs, and other researchers to present an inforgraphic poster at GenerationSci 2020! Infographic posters are a flexible communication platform that allow scientists to present the story behind their research. Join us for an infographic poster workshop, hosted by Science Teaching through Art (STAR), to get started. Workshop participants will be automatically eligible to share their work at the GenerationSci poster session.
