Women's Maker Program: Tech & Culture Speaker Series

Women's Maker Program: Tech & Culture Speaker Series

The primary goal of Tech and Culture speaker series is to connect and inspire ALL members of our UVA community to take on new perspectives, learn emerging technologies and approaches, and build an inclusive culture in tech. Check out our website for more information https://bit.ly/wmpfall2021. 

Join us for our first conversation with Sarah Cosgriff, a science communicator from the United Kingdom.  

Sarah has considerable experience working with various audiences and is passionate about inclusive practice in science engagement.   Her work history includes supporting schools with inclusion in physics, developing STEM education resources for a LBGTQ+ charity, managing a training program to support youth workers delivering STEM activities, and coordinating a program for volunteers from STEM industries working with schools. Her hands-on approach to teaching and enthusiasm for sharing both the triumphs and challenges of working in STEM make her an engaging speaker.  

Sarah's session will provide attendees with an introduction to science communication and its various formats.  Through hands-on participation and attendee engagement, she will share how tailoring messages to different audiences can make learning accessible to divergent audiences.  In addition, she will share her career story and how she found herself working to instill an excitement and appreciation for STEM. 

Please bring your questions and have a piece of paper and a pen on hand to participate!
