A Science Comedian's Guide to Communicating Science
If you drew a Venn Diagram featuring the two sets "science" and "comedy," you might not expect to find much at their intersection. But Brian Malow draws on two decades as a stand-up comedian to help scientists communicate better with general audiences. In a presentation that promises both to amuse and to educate, Brian will offer advice on a range of topics including stage presence, connecting with audiences, using analogies, and abusing PowerPoint. Malow has presented on this topic for the National Science Foundation, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the California Academy of Sciences, the University of Michigan, and many other organizations and universities.
