STEAM Summer School Malta @ The University of Malta

STEAM Summer School 2019

Are you looking to develop your skills in science communication? Do you want to learn the most innovative techniques that combine science and arts? Would you like to build an international network of science communication contacts?

Registration to the fourth STEAM Summer School in Science Communication is now open! The summer school provides an online course combined with a 10-day face to face programme from the 15–24 July. We cover a wide-range of science communication topics, including evaluation, social media, event management, arts and performance. What makes us unique is the combination of the Arts with STEM subjects for creative communication approaches. The course will be comprehensive.

The school is hosted at the University of Malta and will be a fantastic opportunity to hear from international experts (University of Edinburgh, Rhine-Waal University, Science View) and mix with science communication enthusiasts from around the world. Participants will be able to explore innovative ways to engage various public groups with research and will have a chance to improve writing, speaking, performance, mediation and other transferable skills for career development. Through the course, participants will also organise and enjoy our social events which include science theatre, stand-up comedy and film.

Watch our video for a glimpse of what to expect from the 2019 school. We hope to see you there!

 

When: 15 – 24 July, 2019

Where: University of Malta, Malta

Who: Undergraduate and postgraduate students, established researchers, educators and SciComm professionals.

Price: €700 until 15 May, €750 until 4 June
