This workshop, hosted by OnTheFly Improv is for science communicators, scientists who communicate science, and anyone else who'd like to hone their skills in crafting engaging presentations! Through a series of improv games and skills, participants will find:

  *   Improv can help you become more aware and engaged with your audience by teaching you that you need to pay attention to their needs and not to be so concerned with yourself.
  *   Improv also teaches you to make it personal. The most important aspect of communication is not being precise, or hammering in correct and unbiased facts, but rather connecting with their audience on a human level. If you are relatable to your audience, then the audience will care about you and will be more receptive to your message.
  *   Improv teaches you to keep it simple. The best way to lose the audience is to come across as cold or condescending by overusing complex technical jargon. Instead, eliminating jargon, communicating in analogies, and using relatable experiences will help you connect better with your audience and better distill your message.
