[Day6: #ScienceComedy FAQs & hot-takes]

It’s my last day, friends! Let’s talk all things #SciComm Comedy today (standup, comedic storytelling, improv, sketch, humor writing, & more).

I’ll dig into using it for reframing “the expert” & empowering underheard perspectives in #STEM

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?
beltanenetwork.org/DialogueTheory…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

[Day3: Creating & Sustaining Spaces of Practice]
Q: Have you created or been part of initiatives for #Science #STEM #STEAM #SciComm practice? Are you considering creating one yourself?

Today we'll discuss "safe spaces to fail" and scaffolded experiences to build up your skills!
Why do I care?
As a former academic & now in my work to spread adaptable skills in #scicomm through #comedy, it strikes me how little prep we get to teach or give strategic talks as we make the shift from undergrad to grad levels

How many bad habits do we accumulate b/c of this?
What are some bad communication habits in #Science #STEM you've seen, experienced, or are still working to overcome?

Here's where I used to struggle:
- preparing talks the night before
- going over time
- imagining the audience wasn't even there
- bad PPTs
- STAGE FRIGHT

[Day2: Failing Better Together]
Q: What does "failure" mean to you?

For me, my #sciencefails & #SciComm fails fuel my teaching & community-building values:
- Creating spaces to fail better
- Building communities to exchange learnings
- Scaffolded experiences to reframe failure KyleMarian on a microphone with her back to the camera. She's facing the audience and hosting a storytelling show.
#Failure is an important part of #Science & #Comedy, but it wasn't until I got into comedy where I started understanding the impact of being transparent & celebrating failures.

It also got me thinking: does #Academia have an integrated process & outlet for dealing w/ failure?
Do you incorporate #journaling or #reflections into your #SciComm practice?
If you work in teams, do you have regularly-scheduled de-briefs?
As professionals, are you given allotted times in your paid schedule to reflect on project learnings?

It's me, @kylemarian! I'm excited to start a new week of conversations here with y'all.

I'm a #SciComm consultant w/ a passion for creating intersectional, interdisciplinary, & inclusive communities & experiences. This week we're covering practice, failure, strategy, & #comedy! Image of @KyleMarian, a filipina immigrant with long black hair wearing a black jacket and holding a mic smiling. The the right describes her discussions for @iamscicomm during May 27-Jun1. She is a SciComm trainer, comedian, producer, ARIS fellow, Science in Vivo grantee, and Queens Council on the Arts grantee. It has her email academicstandup@gmail.com.
[New Curator, Who Dis?]
A lil more about my #science background: I'm a former #physicalanthropologist who studied the Indonesian "hobbit" species #Homofloresiensis. I also taught dissection-based human gross anatomy and excavated w/ friends in #Atapuerca #PinilladelValle Spain.
My #SciComm training started w/ the @AldaCenter using acting-based #improv to finetune my sense of creating together w/ others & actively listening. Then I took a career pivot towards taking my MSc in #SciComm & #PublicEngagement at @EdinburghUni w/c led me to @BrightClubEDN!

SQUARE #FLATEARTH //THREAD//

...This thread will focus on some of the things covered in a little known FB group called:

"Ethiopian Enoch 1 , Flat Fact Square Earth Truth. Ae Pizza Fe Lie ."

This group differs from other #FLATEARTH groups in the following ways:
* Advanced FE information is presented & shit posting is discouraged.
* Promotion of the "round map" or "debate" are forbidden.
* Redundant experiment, observation & recording of data is encouraged.
* The book "1 Enoch" is the main reference text, (Richard Lawrence Translation)
The main work--started by a man named Sam--is focused on Enoch due to Sam having matched what's described in 1 Enoch Ch. 72, 73, etc, with observable reality. Deeper exploration of the Enoch text gives clues to other occulted knowledge about this realm we call "Earth".
