Science of Storytelling: Communicating Yourself and Your Work Through Stories
Stories are memorable. Stories connect people. In this session, participants will learn skills to incorporate stories into their science communication, to help people engage with and connect with their work, and to them as scientists and engineers. More than just communicating science, this is a chance to learn skills to help people connect with science. At the end of this workshop, participants will have several “signature” stories that they can use in interviews to sell themselves, and to connect with non-scientists or to expand the impact of the ways they communicate their work in other media.
