Would you like to be better at communicating your science? Join us for improvisational games as we build our skills in becoming better science communicators and co-create a community of practice. Learn how to express your passion through techniques that engage body language, adaptability, and engagement with audiences. Speaking Science Improv is a great way to improve your presentation skills.

Our sessions will be led by an amazing duo of theater professionals:
Luverne Seifert, Dept. of Theater, Arts and Dance
Dario Tangelson, Professional Actor, Theater Department and Guthrie Theater

Come to one session, or come to them all!* This is a year-long program and we’ll be adding more dates in the future.

* Each session must be registered for separately. 

** November 27th session will be in Wilson Library on the West Bank

When you teach or present at a conference, you may have noticed that things don’t always go as planned. Improv gives you the ability to read an audience and communicate complex concepts in a way that resonates and sticks with your audience. And when things don’t go as planned, with improv skills you’ll quickly be able to adapt and get things back on track.
