Abstract: L04.00006 : F*** Yeah Fluid Dynamics: Tips for Connecting with Broader Audiences
5:10 PM–5:23 PM
In academic articles and presentations, we’re taught to focus on the science and exclude ourselves from the product. But that attitude can alienate general audiences, making science – and scientists – seem remote and uninteresting. In this talk, I will share suggestions for overcoming these obstacles when communicating science to broader audiences. In particular, I’ll focus on the power of storytelling and narrative in helping your science capture audiences’ attention.
