Thank you to BIOS² Fellows Gracielle Higino and Katherine Hébert, we will be offering a series of two webinars on Science Communication!
The objective of this training is to share and discuss the concepts and tools that contribute to effective science communication. The training will be split into two sessions, which will cover the basic concepts of effective science communication and how social media tools can be used to boost the signal of your research and extend your research network. Each training will take the form of a presentation interspersed with several short activity modules, where participants will be invited to use the tools we will be discussing to kickstart their own science communication.

Story of an internship by Gracielle Higino, Gabriel Dansereau and Francis Banville
Back in 2019, which feels like decades ago, we started a humble project in the Poisot lab which we called Code Hour. The goal was to set weekly hours to practice Julia, since we were all learning to use it and we could greatly benefit from each other’s help and encouragement. The project went well (although we frequently ended up spending much more than one hour). It “spilled” out of our lab and found enthusiasm at IVADO, who already had plans to promote a challenge in which participants would make a commitment to code for 100 days. That’s when our internship was born.
