Science Communication for CIN Ambassadors
Science communication is the art of making science simple and easy to understand for everyone. Through the Science Communication for CIN (Community in Nature) Ambassadors programme, students will be equipped with the knowledge and skills that will allow them to effectively communicate Singapore’s biodiversity and nature conservation-related topics to the public in creative and engaging ways.
This programme aims to:
i) Train students to carry out nature outreach activities in creative and engaging ways that are relatable to the general public
ii) Expose students to various platforms and let them pick up different skill sets that can be used for nature outreach
iii) Nurture students to develop an interest and appreciation for Singapore’s biodiversity, and contribute to the conservation of our natural heritage
Schools will have to complete one core compulsory module (Science Communication and Research) and one specialisation module (Wildlife Documentary Production, Nature through Drama, Creation of Biodiversity Trail or Nature Journalism). After the training workshops, students will be assigned projects that are specific to the specialisation module of choice.
Each workshop is 3 to 3.5 hours long and will take place in the afternoon.
