Science Media SAVVY Express offers one-on-one, 15 minute training sessions for scientists and researchers to practice speaking about their work on-camera, with helpful advice and feedback from experienced media professionals. Participants will learn practical tips for communicating their work to a wider audience and -- as an added bonus -- receive an edited 90 second video clip explaining their research that they are free to reuse.
Participation is open to New Zealand-based scientists and researchers attending the event, and is free of charge. Places are limited, with priority given to those likely to encounter media interest in their research topic or area of expertise.
We will be on-site at the conference venue THUR 13 DECEMBER. Sessions will take place during pre-assigned time slots based on preferences indicated on the sign up form. Register below to express your interest in participating.
Science Media SAVVY Express is a project of the Science Media Centre, funded by the Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment (MBIE) as part of the New Zealand Govt’s Curious Minds initiative to encourage and support public engagement with science and technology.
