Wikipedia provides an ideal tool for making information about science more readily accessible to a wide community, ranging from school children, the general public with an interest in science and policy makers as well as other scientists.

This session will provide an opportunity for those who may be new to Wikipedia to create a Wikipedia profile and even update existing Wikipedia articles.

In this workshop participants will edit and perhaps even create Wikipedia pages. Please bring a laptop or WiFi enabled device.
