      Dumb it up!
      Have you ever tried to explain your PhD research to your grandparents? Have you ever had to convince a person or entity to fund your very specific research? Getting your PhD involves often presenting and sharing your work to other experts in your field. But the bigger challenge is learning how to explain a technical research topic to someone who hasn't studied it for years. Let's talk about how grad school can and should prepare students to communicate technical topics to a general audience.

      Thursday, November 17th
      6 to 7 p.m. ET

      Papadakis Integrated Science Building (PISB)
      Room 104, First Floor
      Drexel University
