The Storytelling of Science

As attention spans shrink, engaging 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.

Please join The Science Nation for *The Storytelling of Science*. See the
best in the nation tell their own story of science, and drive their
discussion on the stories behind the latest discoveries. 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.

Events will be held on the following dates:
6 April – Adelaide
