Speaking Science at the Story Collider
Things have been very quiet on Do You Speak Science? for the last few weeks, for which I can only apologise. I have been having plenty of ideas for new posts and I promise to get down to writing in the next few days and weeks. Expect lithium, foreign counting systems (French and Norwegian, amongst others), an Improbable event review, and so on.
In the meantime, you might be interested in Story Collider, an event for story-tellers to share their experiences of science from a personal perspective. For my part, I'll be telling a story about being in hospital with meningitis. I don't want to spoil the story (and if you can't make it, there will be a recording available afterwards), but you can get some idea of what my experience was like (although not the specific episode I'll be talking about) at this link.
The event takes place at Barts Pathology Museum in London, UK at 7pm on Tuesday 25 June. Entry is free, but you have to book your place at this link (so the organisers can keep an eye on numbers). You can let me know you're coming by leaving a comment below, or on Twitter @alex_brovvn - that way I'll be in the slightly weird situation of speaking to a room of apparent strangers who I actually "know" online.
Over to you:
- Can I expect to see you at Story Collider in London on 25 June?
- What else is worth seeing/doing in London earlier that day?
- Have you been to the Barts Pathology Museum? What was your favourite thing you saw there?
- Have you attended a Story Collider? What were the best bits?
- Have you spoken at a Story Collider? What story did you tell? What was your experience like?
