Dissecting Scientific Data & Literature: Learning how to critically analyze a science paper
Often times, we are bombarded with scientific statistics and data about various health and disease topics. How can we train ourselves to filter what is good information and bad information? In this project, we will read and analyze scientific literature from prestigious scientific journals such as Science, Nature or Cell and break down how to read, analyze and question the author's findings. Based on the students interests, we will choose a paper to dissect, prepare a digestable summary with proposed follow-up ideas or experiments.
Communicating scientific ideas visually: an Adobe Illustrator Workshop
Students will get an introductory tutorial on how to create and edit scientific images and will then get a chance to design their own piece of scientific art, based on an interest of their choosing. Basic familiarity with Adobe Illustrator is recommended but not required.
