Subject: [WEC-GRAD-L] FW: Science Boot Camp Opportunities


FYI….This is an excellent training that provides tips and techniques for effective scientific presentations to variety of audiences.  Meetings at UF will be at Reitz Union. Although it is geared to those in ocean science, I think it might be useful training for those involved in natural resource/water areas as well. No cost for this training.
