Opening of storytelling and presentation labs
Storytelling, story making and the clear presentation of an idea are basic elements of science communication but also basic skills with an increasing demand on the job market. SciCo, drawing material from its work on science communication through the years and from its corporate training projects, created the workshop “Science Storytelling” which is offered as a pilot to the SciCo Ambassadors group from January until March 2016.
The workshops deal with the structure of the narrative, its adaptation to serve educational goals, the creation of science stories and the use of new media and social networks in the narrative. Its aim is to develop the participants’ skills on efficiently communicating concepts and ideas to the general public.
