Goal: Introduce geoscientists of all levels to effective storytelling as a science communication tool.
Description: Come out from behind the podium and into the limelight to share your science with an audience outside your field and possibly even your comfort zone. With the rising popularity of public science talks like science cafes, Nerd Nites, Science on Tap, and Story Collider, not to mention Ignite and TED Talks, and even science comedy nights like Stand Up for Science and Peer Revue, now's the time to hone skills to expose non-seismologists to the wonder and importance of your research. Take advantage of this opportunity to get tips, tricks, and best practices from science communications experts from your friendly local facilities. We will explore techniques to engage different types of audiences, in a safe environment friendly even to introverts.
