Translating Science and Technobabble with Visual Story Telling

Workshop Thursday | 4–5 pm | MECA

Have you ever shared your passion for an innovative cutting edge technology only to watch the audience’s eyes glaze over? Whether it’s a TED talk or investor presentation explaining complex science to a general audience is no easy task. My goal is to help the audience better understand the process of breaking down the language silos that exist in the science and tech fields to develop a story that is more accessible to a general audience. I will also talk about the process of developing animation to help create visuals that bring a clearer understanding of complex science. Using examples of past projects I will point out the pitfalls and successes of trying to reach an audience beyond your peers. Ultimately to channel your passions into presentations that really set off light bulbs in your audiences heads.
