Communicating the facts. It's more than a feeling.

Friday, 03/23/2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Science is based on facts, so how can we as science advocates communicate our knowledge when others don’t “feel” the same? Together, we will have fun exploring new ways to express factual science through the improvisational activities of InterPlay. Using movement, story-telling and our voices, you will be led incrementally into enlivening and personalizing the way you speak up for science.
