Congratulations to OFFshore ITRH Chief Investigator Wenhua Zhao who was recently selected as a winner in the Fresh Science 2018 competition for Western Australia.
Fresh Science is an annual national competition that helps early career researchers share their stories of discovery and gain national media coverage for their work.
As a “Freshie” Wenhua will attend a one-day media and communication training course that will provide him with the skills to communicate his research in a compelling way. He will practice being interviewed by journalists, present and field questions at a school forum at the Fremantle Maritime Museum, and finally share his research discoveries at a pub night event at the Brisbane Hotel in Perth on June 27th .
In addition, Fresh Science will write and publish a short media profile on Wenhua and his research. Ultimately one story per state will be written up as a press release and sent out to the media.
No doubt this experience will be invaluable to both Wenhua and his research!
