Join our Earth Science Week competition!
Dear AuScopers: help us celebrate Earth Science Week (Sunday 13 — Saturday 19 October) by sharing a science tale made possible by the AuScope toolkit on social media, and we’ll send* the most creative entry to #ASC2020 to learn about SciComm.
Sounds enticing? Here’s how to participate:
Find your story and try to touch on this year’s ‘Geoscience is for everyone’ theme.
Choose your storytelling mode and social media channel/s: it might be a singe or series of captioned images that can be shared as a Twitter thread, Instagram story, or LinkedIn post (+/- comment/s). Or perhaps it is an animated GIF or video of less than 1 minute-length that can be shared via any of those social media channels.
Communicate your intention to participate: by emailing us by Tuesday 1 October.
Prepare your story: imperfect creative execution is fine, we don’t expect killer design skills. The more personality, the better!
Prepare your message: At the least, make sure you have a 1-2 sentence caption that summarises what you did, specifically which toolkit (particular instruments, portals, software or data) you used, and what cool science came out the other end.
Publish your story: on Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram during Earth Science Week using hashtags #EarthScienceWeek, #AuScopeImpact and #NCRISimpact, and tagging @AuScope (onTwitter or LinkedIn) or @AuScopeToolkit (on Instagram).
Hold tight for the winner announcement afterwards on Monday 21 October.
*Please note that we will cover event registration (only) for one person (only) to attend the Australian Science Communicators Conference from Monday 17 — Wednesday 19 February 2020.
