Facts are Dead, Long Live Facts: How to Tell Compelling Science Stories

Good communicating is vital for science and for business. Today many scientists recognize the value of communication but also find themselves overwhelmed by the challenges of making their message heard in an increasingly complex world.

Christina Agapakis, creative director of Ginkgo Bioworks, will lead a workshop on communicating science for different audiences. Bring ideas for a story you want to tell or a short slide deck you're working on for a pitch or technical presentation and you'll learn:

  • How to simplify your message for maximum impact
  • How to declutter your slides to present a powerful visual message
  • How to target your message and build trust with your audience

Join us for a lively conversation about how facts are made as well as practical strategies for making your voice heard.
