    Disrupting Science Communication to Integrate Public Policy

    Learn how you can leverage storytelling to further scientific progress.

    Monday, Oct 16, 2017 6:00 - 8:00 PM @ Chicago Athletic Association
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    On April 22, 2017, more than 60,000 Chicagoans marched in the largest science event in history. At this hands-on Lab, Adam Arcus, Kristian Aloma, and the team that put on the March For Science Chicago will introduce how a rapid response paired with social media helped create a movement out of a moment. Attendees will jump into interactive group exercises that relate to storytelling, science, politics and the internet, learning why narratives are as important as facts, how to break down technical and complex issues into story arcs and how to give people a reason to stay engaged.
