How to Talk Science

An interactive workshop blending public speaking & science

Here’s the problem: science is still poorly communicated to the general public. As a result, journalists and media outlets publish sensationalised, often misleading claims— which in turn cause laypeople to hold on to completely unscientific ideas or have a crude view of how science works.

The solution? Better science communication! And how do you learn that? Through the Vox Club!

This Thursday the 6th of October, Vox is holding an interactive event, teaching the basics of science communication through effective storytelling, public speaking and memorization techniques. The goal of this workshop is so you can ace those honours presentations, explain your lab report to your grandma, and communicate confidently, anywhere, anytime.

It will be held at the Green Chemical Futures Foyer from 6:00pm to 8:30pm, and tickets are priced at $5 for one, or $12 for three (bring friends!). Note that the tickets include dinner! You can find out more at their TryBooking web page.
