IWD: Comedy & Communication in STEM

We all love a bit of a laugh, but how can you use comedy and comedic techniques in your day-today STEM communication, outreach and teaching? 

This International Women’s Day I had the privilege of taking part in the Finding Ada panel discussion titled ‘Comedy and Communication’, looking at how we can all use comedy techniques in our STEM communications and teaching.

The hour long live-streamed discussion was hosted by comedy and science writer Dr Helen Pilcher and included comedian and science comedy producer Kyle Marian Viterbo and biologist, YouTuber and science communicator Dr Sally Le Page. It was great to speak to, learn from and laugh with these incredible scientists. 

Here is the video of the panel discussion:

And a huge thank you to Suw Charman-Anderson (founder of Finding Ada ) for organising the event!

Finding Ada supports women in STEM via three key projects: Ada Lovelace Day celebrates the achievements of women in STEM; the Finding Ada Network provides mentoring and support; and the Finding Ada Conference shares best practice and advice.
