Sept 19th – Social Media Workshop

Broader Impacts Group (BIG) is organizing a Social Media Workshop led by JP student Gabi Serrato Marks on Tuesday September 19th from 4:15-5:15 pm in the Student Lounge. 

This interactive workshop will focus on using Twitter and Instagram to communicate science and make your research more accessible to a public audience. Gabi will give a short summary of why it is important/worth your time to use social media, how it can help with your broader impacts, and mention some of the differences between platforms. Then, we will practice writing tweets about recent research papers and brainstorm possible Instagram posts about our research. It would be helpful to have a Twitter account prior to this workshop, even if you have never tweeted anything, and it would be good to bring a laptop or phone. Feel free to send questions to gserrato@mit.edu before the workshop!

We’re hoping to have snack options provided by the JP reps so if you are planning on attending- please RSVP here to allow us to better predict amounts of snacks to buy!
