Wright Lab graduate student Samantha Pagan recently participated in a workshop called ComSciCon-SciWri2022 to further develop her science communication skills.

According to Pagan, “this consisted of a few days of science writing/journalism workshops, and then we attended the ScienceWriters2022 conference in Memphis, TN (Oct 21-25).”

Pagan continued, “during ScienceWriters2022, all ComSciCon-SciWri2022 participants were assigned to a conference session to cover in a news story for the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing (CASW) websiteIt was a fun and very helpful experience!”

The article Pagan composed during the experience is called “Data visualization reveals hidden wonders from telescopes,” and is available here.
