Copy (2) of P1030525Public speaking can be one of the most difficult tasks for a scientist in any position.  Whether in academia or industry, from student to professor, the scientist needs to be an effective communicator of ideas.

The MOB graduate student group, SECS, schedules seminars once a week during the Fall and Spring terms to give students in the program the opportunity to speak in front of a group of fellow students about topics of current interest.

Through questions and discussion in this less formal seminar setting, participating students can learn how to become better lecturers and public speakers. Audience members are expected to offer suggestions for improvement as well as learn how to ask clear and concise questions in a seminar setting.

The MOB Graduate Program provides Momo’s Pizza for these meetings.
