The design of scientific figures is a key step that all researchers undertake as they present or publish their work, but one that they typically receive little training or education on how to do effectively. The Waterloo Electrochemical Society Student Chapter (WatECS) was delighted present a workshop on designing scientific figures, hosted by Felice Frankel. Felice is a science photographer and research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and an internationally recognized expert in scientific graphics, visualization, photography, and communication of scientific results to the public.

The workshop was divided into two sections, the first included Felice's presentation on the significance of scientific figures with examples of methods used to improve them. The second part was a workshop where participants who submitted figures were able to discuss their figures with Felice and attendants for ways to improve their figure. More details on Felice’s work can be found on her website
