Why Tell Stories?
Humans love stories, and science is full of them, from historical anecdotes to your own late-night, coffee-fueled
inspirations. Integrating storytelling into science communication increases engagement, a sense of inclusion, and
trust in science and the scientist. Sadly, we aren’t trained as storytellers, and we often tend to strip away those very
human elements of our work when we present it. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY!
What You'll Learn
Join us, and you’ll learn about where stories come from, how to integrate them into your research and make them your own, narrative structure theory, and how to establish a stage presence and persona tuned to your audience and goals. You’ll get a chance to put the training into practice, workshopping your own research project into a new story.
Presented by science educators, faculty, professional storytellers, and maybe even a magician
