As attention spans shrink the ability to engage others with science is getting harder, but does this have to be the case? Whether it is Archimedes taking a bath or an apple falling on Newton’s head, stories are far more engaging and easier to remember than the facts science has to offer.
The ABC, the Australian Academy of Science, the Australian Science Communicators, and BrisScience are bringing Australia’s top scientists and communicators together to explore the storytelling of science. See the best in the nation tell their own story of science, and drive their discussion on the stories behind cutting edge science. From the origin of the universe to the exciting technologies that will change our future, this event is one story you will want to hear.
