Summaries

Summary Sentence: Storytelling skills for scientists

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Randy Olson, author of the book Don't Be Such A Scientist, achieved tenure as a marine biologist before jumping head first into Hollywood filmmaking at age 38. In his films, Dr. Olson works to communicate critical science issues to ordinary people, a skill that we could all benefit from having. Dr. Olson's background in both science and mass communication give him a unique perspective on the importance of visual communication, spontaneity, and storytelling to the mass communication of science.

This workshop is targeted toward scientists and seeks to improve their storytelling and communication skills to the general public.

Gourmet cookies, coffee, and other refreshments will be provided! Don't miss this wonderful opportunity!
