An interactive training for researchers and science communicators, with tips and tricks on how to present your research through fun, hands-on science activities. Science Festivals, Researchers’ Days, Open Days… There are numerous occasions on which the general public is invited to come and exchange with researchers. What defines a successful science workshop?
