Participants in L3 heard from postdocs, graduate students, or faculty at the University of Chicago (at its Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics as well as its Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics), as well as employees of the Field Museum, FermiLab, and Adler Planetarium.
All presenters were trained on how best to communicate with older-adult audiences by gerontologist Karen Kolb Flude, who provided valuable feedback throughout the program. Many gave their talks multiple times, and benefited from having a chance to hone their communication skills with our wonderful audiences/participants. Just as one example, Daniel Scolnic went from L3 presentations to being a FameLab National Finalist — you can think of this as the American Idol of Science Communication. You might enjoy watching his FameLab talk about the accelerating universe.
