Sir Mark Walport said it best: “Science is not finished until it is communicated.” Michigan State University is one of the academic world’s epicenters for scientific research and innovation. With the great responsibility of such scientific advancement comes the necessity to communicate it with the greater population. This is more important than ever, especially in today’s ever-changing medical and political climate. In an effort to connect students with leaders in the science communication field and develop effective communication skills, MSU SciComm will be hosting a virtual SciComm Conference, "Conveyance", on March 20th and 21st, 2021

Workshop and speakers at Conveyance will encompass MSU SciComm’s three main methods of communicating science to the public: art, policy, and literature. Featured science artists include Dr. Semarhy Quiñones, Kelly Stanford, and the MSU Broad Art Museum. Dr. Quiñones is an accomplished women in STEM coloring book author-illustrator and bacterial geneticist at California State University. Kelly Stanford is a science communicator and world-renown artist from the University of Hull. We are also excited for the opportunity to virtually tour the Broad Art Museum with one of their curators, Michelle Word.
