What’s the message? Say it! Show it!

“You don’t really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother.“ (Albert Einstein)

“A picture says as much as 1000 words!” (Chinese proverb)

The doctoral researcher community in Kiel works on diverse disciplines and topics, yet often we know little about each other’s research. We will be spending a whole day networking with other doctoral researchers in marine sciences, explaining our research to each other in a simple yet profound manner. The FYORD Doc Day is an event to exchange, learn and communicate. A day where science meets communication meets art!

Say it!

But how? We’ll go through some easy tricks, asking “So what?” ”What if” and sharing other tricks and approaches.

Show it!

We go a step further using a visual approach– we’ll be joined by an expert trainer in science visualisation (Barbara Schneider who sketched us the graphic above), who will unleash our creativity in simple drawings and images.

Who can apply?
