What’s up at SciRio? (January 2022)


What’s up at SciRio?

At SciRio, we find opportunities for Science Communicators and help create new ones and explore avenues to construct, collaborate, and contribute to expanding our community.

It has been a fantastic start to 2022 for SciRio. Thank you for your continued support.

Let’s create something brilliant together!​

Our new step in the SciComm sphere…

We are Knowledge Partners with India Science Fest, India’s largest public celebration of science and technology. ISF endeavours to serve as a platform for deeper engagement between scientists, researchers, professionals, entrepreneurs, and students.

Partnering with India Science Fest furthers our vision of community engagement and the opportunity for building meaningful connections between stakeholders of science and society.

The most appealing part of ISF’s Continuum and SciComm Huddle is that it opens many opportunities for science communicators and science engagement professionals to engage, experience and build their skillset at scale.

Our founder, Suchitha Champak, will have a fireside chat in ISF 2022 with Krish Ashok on his recent book ‘Masala Lab – The Science of Indian Cooking‘, on 23 Jan at 7 pm IST.

You can attend the webinar here.

We launched Sci-e-Comm…

Sci-e-Comm is our e-commerce platform that hosts and supports creators in science.

This is one of the ways SciRio is working towards creating opportunities for science communicators and helping them reach their audience.

The postcards created by Sahana Sitharaman, available only on Sci-e-Comm.

These postcards are our first product, handcrafted with a love for science that can either become the letter for your pen pal or have them as a collectable. What’s more, these cards can be great conversation-starters with your friends and family. You can also make this a memorable gift for your loved ones!

So check it out and geek out!

Author
Founder, Managing Editor at SciRio | Personal Site

I am the Founder and Managing Editor of SciRio, a digital ecosystem for science communicators who want to communicate science to people who are non-experts in any fields of science. After stints as a Research Associate at the Indian Institute of Science and Centre for Human Genetics working on Cancer Research and Developmental Biology, I shifted gears to communicating science and become an entrepreneur.

I established SciRio to support science communicators in networking better, finding appropriate training and resources, and ultimately provide unexplored opportunities to science communicators.
