SciComm Lite 2021
This workshop was an awesome experience. It covered a little bit of everything about SciComm. The mentors were REALLY great, and the discussions created around the topics were amazing. The workshop, even though was virtual, it allowed for a lot of interaction and future collaboration with other attendees!
I had an incredible time participating in a well-curated, first-of-its-kind SciComm workshop by SciRio. All sessions were packed with unique perspectives, resources & intriguing discussions exploring the nitty-gritty of Scicomm. Adding to it were networking sessions, which enabled connections over similar interests. Thanks to the workshop, I’m now looking beyond just writing. I’d love to explore other formats like podcasts and zines with a special emphasis on Indian language communication.

The Scicomm Lite 1.0 workshop organized by SciRio has truly been a master class in scientific outreach. They have put together an amazing line-up of mentors with varied science communication expertise. Within the span of a week, I was introduced to the world of writing, podcasting, science art, and more. Through this workshop, SciRio has helped foster an environment of collaboration and partnership and has successfully created a community of science writers.
It was a very well-organized event where I got to understand the different nuances in science communication. The event had useful information on how to pitch your content, be it writing, sci-art, or podcasting, and its do’s and don’ts. The process of podcasting is something that I absolutely loved! The amazing part is that one can get feedback on content from the mentors after the workshop too which is brilliant for a novice scicommer! Thank you to the mentors and Suchitha!
The first of its kind workshop for science communication enthusiasts. It was an absolute delight to be part of the workshop. Sci Rio did an excellent job of curating mentors who came forward and delivered insightful as well as interactive presentations. These 7 days were packed with tips on how to set forth in science communication. The cherry on top is the chance to do assignments and get feedback from the mentors. Looking forward to being a part of such workshops in the future.
I am delighted to attend my first Sci-Com workshop here at SciRio. The modules were really interesting and some of them are almost new to me. The interactive sessions and activities during sessions by speakers made me feel attending this workshop in physical mode. Working on an assignment would break the ice of starting our journey in Sci-Comm.
It was one of a kind workshop. From mentors to fellow participants, the community was diverse. The session was power-packed and networking was just the cherry on the top. Thank you Suchitha. Look forward to more such sessions!!!
A great workshop conducted by SciRio. Truly one of its kind in the virtual setting. The virtual platform used was excellent in the terms that it helped up interact with one another and the mentors. A very fruitful session; learned a lot of new stuff!
As a novice, my experience with SciRio has been enriching and captivating. it gave me a real-time picture of things in the world of SciComm and also helped me navigate my path in this field by giving me concrete advice. 10/10 would recommend
