I believe every scientist needs to be equipped with the oral and written skills to communicate their science to any audience, from a kindergartener to a laboratory colleague.
AGUADO LAB PARTICIPATES IN THE SAN DIEGO FESTIVAL OF SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
The Aguado Lab was proud to be represented at the 2023 San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering - the largest event of its kind in Southern California! Every year, this festival brings together industry, business leaders, government, community organizations, public outreach centers, academia, schools and school districts, and parents, providing a collaborative community for children from K-12 to engage in science and engineering activities.
Our graduate students, Rayyan, Talia, and Nicole (pictured on the left) volunteered to teach visitors about stem cells and tissue engineering using a demo developed by the Aguado iBiomaterials Lab. We thank the Bioengineering Graduate Society for the invitation and opportunity to participate at this wonderful event!
AGUADO LAB HOSTS GIRL SCOUTS FOR LAB VISITS!
Thanks to an invitation from Women In Bioengineering at UCSD, our lab hosted 25 Girl Scouts members and spoke to them about our research.
Pictured are Nicole and Talia (graduate students) leading a demo for attendees where they made sodium alginate beads to learn about the wonders of biomaterials.
PROJECT BRIDGE COLORADO
A total of 57 postdoctoral scholars from Colorado research institutions assembled at the Colorado State Capitol on January 19 to share their research with Colorado state legislators as part of Early Career Scientists Day. In support of the event, Governor John Hickenlooper signed an official proclamation naming January 19, 2018, as “Early Career Scientist Day.”
CU SCIENCE DISCOVERY
CU Science Discovery trains scientists of all disciplines and skill levels to communicate their research to public audiences. Brian served as a CU Science Ambassador and designed hands-on activities and presented them at public events.
BIOMATERIALS SCIENCE BLOG
Brian has written for the Biomaterials Science Blog, where he has summarized peer reviewed literature published in the journal to a lay audience.
Brian co-founded ComSciCon-Chicago in 2015 after participating in the national ComSciCon annual meeting in 2014. ComSciCon is a series of workshops designed to help graduate students refine their oral and written communication skills in the sciences.
Brian took the TEDx stage at Northwestern to talk about implantable materials for cancer detection.
