Louisiana Sea Grant will host an Infographic Challenge Coastal Connections competition at Louisiana State University on Friday, October 29, 2021 at 11:30 a.m. in Dalton J. Woods Auditorium in the Energy, Coast & Environment Building. The competition is open to all graduate students conducting coastal research.
In this competition students will use a mixture of visual imagery and text to effectively communicate their research findings. An infographic is a tool that combines imagery, text, and statistical figures to easily convey a subject. They help communicate information quickly and clearly. This Coastal Connections competition will focus on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas, crystalize their research discoveries and share them using the power of visual media.
