The first time I was asked to make a scientific poster I laughed, thinking it was a joke.
Here I am, six years later, at my 7th conference presenting my findings on a poster. Posters may sound like something you just made in school, but they are actually an extremely efficient way to summarise all of your findings and get insight from experts in your field.
Poster presenting is actually quite daunting, with over 3000 scientists wondering through there is no way to predict the questions you may be asked.
I always keep a bevvie in hand, so if I need extra time to formulate a response I can take a long, slow sip of my drink -that is likely lukewarm by then, hahahah.
What do you do to calm your nerves at poster presentations?
“I can work with the means. But I’d rather party with the outliers.” 🤓😏 A huge thank you to @thescicommunity for the feature, and for welcoming me into their amazing community of scientists! Communication of research in language everyone can understand and making it accessible to as many people as possible is so valuable! Really excited to see so many talented scientists joining together to help others understand why we’re so passionate about the work we do! Check out my feature to read more! 🤗
