The activities conducted by each working groups within YSN-ASM are regularly updated via Instagram, Facebook and print media. We have achieved almost 3000 likes on Facebook and reached over 18,000 people! In addition, this working group also maintains the official YSN-ASM website and one of the main agenda for the 2018 team was to update and simplify the running and content of the current YSN-ASM website. The team had many meetings throughout the 2018 calendar year to iron-out flaws regarding the current website and we are on track to achieve the 2019 target. In addition, we have created templates for the YSN-ASM PowerPoint, letterhead, brochure and e-signature as part of the branding and increasing YSN-ASM visibility.

Lastly, the Science@Media team has created this compendium as a collection to highlight all the activities, events and accomplishments of all the working groups as well as members and affiliates in the year 2018!
