Connecting Science and Communication for the Masses with Lauren Robertson, Ph.D.

EHow do you talk about science in a manner that engages the general audience? For so long, scientists have been separated from the public through confusing dogma and research papers that do not translate well to everyday life. Public opinion and policies depend heavily on scientific studies, and people are drawn to those who can relay scientific information to them in an honest, clear, and understandable language.

Using Human-Centered Design Thinking to Teach Transferable Skills with Caleb McKinney, Ph.D.

EHuman-centered design thinking has always been a widely applicable field of study and implementation. Design thinking has begun to change how we approach research and data analysis from facilitators to design sprints and creating conversations that promote change and understanding of an issue. Caleb McKinney, Ph.D., utilizes the power of design thinking to track the progress and success of graduates while integrating methods on how to help them better survive in a postdoctoral world.

Experiential Learning as a Service with Leah Davidson

EHow do you bridge the gap between students who do not have the necessary experience and network that will help them get hired after college and companies who are counting their losses and are working to avoid hiring the wrong people? Leah Davidson saw this as a dilemma that persists in society and she has made it her mission to connect students looking to gain real-world experience with companies who are willing to host exciting projects.

U-Delaware's Design and Engineering Ingenuity with Jenni Buckley, PhD and Whitney Sample

Working in close collaboration at the University of Delaware’sDesign Studio, Co-Directors Whitney Sample &Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Jenni Buckley, PhDhave established a partnership based on mutual admirationand respect. While designers & engineers often bring different world views and personalities to their work which creates a level of tension, Jenni & Whitney can finish one another’s sentences and often do. Both of them have deep connections in the medical and healthcare fields. Virtually simultaneously, both were being inundated with requests from medical doctors who were very concerned about the lack of PPE as the pandemic began to escalate. These inquiries served as the catalyst for springing Whitney and Jenni into action.After doing their own research, they realized that many other projects were targeting N95 medical grade masks. They decided to focus on designing a mask that would serve the needs of essential frontline workers at grocery stores & pharmacies, food delivery, Amazon, UPS & FedEx drivers, and first responders.Whitney sought out inspiration from a number of existing populardesigns and then brought his 30 years of experience to bear to improve upon what is currently available. The end goal – a design that has a properlytight yet comfortable fit, where filters can be readily replaced, and which can be produced affordably at scale and easily stored in a convenient form factor – essentially flat-packed like a military ready -to-eat meals eg., “MRE “The ingenious “HensNest” mask design – in honor of the U. of Delaware mascot the Blue Hens, is best appreciated when you look at the assembly video. It’s a tented structure that makes it far easier to breathe. It accommodates a range of recommended filters. Most importantly, it is scientifically proven to be 4-8X more effective than traditional cloth masks. The implication- many lives will be saved as a result of using his superior design as we re-open the US economy.

Distilling and Sharing Science on Social Media with Austin Lee Chiang, MD

EThere are certain clinical nuances in medical and/or scientific communication that gets lost in translation when communications professionals without background on the subject are left to relay these messages on their own. This is why Dr. Austin Lee Chiang Medical made it one of his biggest goals to get more clinicians on social media to talk about their work and to help educate the public. But this requires the ability to distill science for public consumption without dumbing down the information.
