2017 Science Appearances!

Here is the tentative list of where I’ll be doing some sort of science communication this year, so far, already. Whew. This is partially for me to keep track, and also to invite you to public presentations where applicable. I’ll update as things change.

(For simplicity’s sake, this currently doesn’t include my travel schedule for PDX Broadsides or any other reason, but there’ll probably be another post about that soon.)

Confirmed  Tentative


26-27: Science Talk NW; OMSI, Portland, OR. (Conference.)

27: Science Talk NW Trainee Competition; OMSI, Portland. (Unknown if public or not currently.)

14-19: Society for Reproductive Investigation; Orlando, FL. (Conference.)

24-25: ComSciCon PacNW; Seattle, WA. (Committee member, regional workshop. Potentially performing with PDX Broadsides the night between; that show would be open to the public.)
