We’ve been doing the #SciCommChall offline for a while already, and this is a cool example of a #LOLmythesis that Sara did as part of the January #SciCommChall.
Sara is working on developing scicomm for material sciences (specifically nano sciences) in a virtual reality format. She writes: “When water striders get wet feet, tiny hairs have superpowers and audiences tear up. Who gets immersed more? We’ll soon find out!” and it is shown on a scanning electron microscopy image of a water strider’s hairy leg.
Sara is writing about her PhD- and scicomm journey on Instagram: Find her as @frauwissenschaft (“Ms. Science” in English)!
