Two of the organizers of the 2017 March For Science Chicago, Kristian Aloma, CEO of Threadline, Inc., and Adam Arcus, Auxiliary Board President of C2ST, talk about storytelling, science, and the importance of a good ol’ fashioned IRL conversation.

In this Speakeasy, Kristian and Adam will chat about how it takes more than a march to help science and why, as science and technology continue to advance, it is more important than ever that science connects with society. If, as scientists and science advocates, we want science to play an important role in our daily lives, the public must not only understand why STEM matters, but then have the tools at their disposal to spread the message. The pair will introduce how storytelling, narratives, and conversation are vital tools to accomplish that mission. As a takeaway, Kristian and Adam will help us with what we can do every day to be effective advocates for science.
