Mentorship Component: Crafting a Creative Scientific Career
The topic of the mentorship program is improving your science communication through developing skills in creating visually appealing and educational graphic content, either for science education for the public or for scientific publications. The goals are: 1) how to create publishable figures that can clearly and effectively summarize your research; 2) how to better educate to the general public your science with eye-catching figures; and 3) improving your science communication skills. James Tuttle Keane will be leading this workshop, who is a published scientist at Caltech. Beyond research, he is a scientific illustrator, specializing in pen and pencil illustrations of planetary science and geoscience research. His illustrations have been published in Nature Geoscience and Nature Astronomy, and he is the resident illustrator on the New Horizons science team. You can find his live-sketches of scientific conferences (e.g. LPSC, AGU, DPS) on Twitter.
