Making the most out of MRS Meetings


Science communication (#scicomm) is about “working a room” to start conversations with others in your field, publishing scientific research, or talking about materials research with the general public. Each instance, however, requires a different set of skills. Three sessions are offered on the first day of the Meeting to start off the week in communicating science.
