[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?

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.

We are neither political, nor patriotic, and we are both political and patriotic...
..We are not political because we are not interested in politics, certainly not politics as usual. We are not patriotic because a real patriot isn't supposed to question capitalism...
...We are political because we are interested in structures of power and rule and how they are affecting our lives. And we are patriotic because we believe in the idea that is America and we believe it belongs to the world...

1) What is the power of the spy state, and who really controls it?
2) What if King Barry mostly did as he was told? What if Bill and Hill did the same? What if our government is filled with people of low character who are little to nothing more than puppets on a string who dance their dance for those that “know things” about them?
3) What if these people found it easy to own people of privilege, power, and fame?

Dear #3rdWaveFeminists and women of America: Once upon a time (in my lifetime), women were the property of their father and then their husbands. Upon marriage they ceased to be Miss Mary and became Mrs John Doe. They had no help if their husband beat them. It was their ... 1/
... their fault. They were not allowed to work outside the home without their husband's permission. They could not get credit in their own name and so, therefore, could not buy property, own a car, or go to post-secondary education. Birth control ... 2/
... was only prescribed, by some doctors, if husbands agreed. Men could legally rape their wives. Women spent their lives either pregnant, giving birth, or cleaning diapers and then raising children that men werent expected to do help with and called 'hen-pecked' if they did. 3/

[Transformation&Representation] Before diving into today’s topic of transformation and representation. I would like to run a series of polls. Please feel free to participate!

1. Are you currently working in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) field?
[Transformation&Representation]

2. If you are in STEM (student or employee or any STEM involvement), are you a minority? (Minority here is defined as any group that is underrepresented, includes race, gender, disability, sexual identity or orientation etc)
I am really passionate about this topic because I am a minority in my field. I am a minority because I am a woman. I am a minority because I am an African researcher. I am a minority because I am of colour. #womeninSTEM #POCinSTEM #AfricanSTEM

The words of @realDonaldTrump #GreatAwakening
"Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you the American people."
"The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exists for only one reason; to protect and enrich itself. The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election."
"For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind."
