What About?

- Who are we? - We are 17 Spanish scientists, most of us PhDs actively working in labs and universities in Spain and abroad, who are passionate about science communication.The group is composed of several physicists, mathematicians, biologists... even engineers!
- What do we do? - Our strength is using live comedic performances as a vehicle to bring science to the general public. Our 90 min stand-up show is composed of several 10 minute monologues performed by scientists speaking about our respective fields of research; math, physics, biology... The Q&A session that follows the performance offers the public the opportunity to engage with the scientists whose responses use improvisational humor to educate and inform.
- Anything else? - Yes! Our 3 days workshop in science communication where we teach oral and writing techniques to communicate your science. Our research projects in education using performing arts with a H2020 project (PERFORM) and our nationwide program in association with Fundación Telefónica, LocosXciencia. Our show for kids: Clowtifics, experiments and lots of fun with our science clowns.The list doesn't end there: videos on Youtube, video sketchs, radio programs, our social networks, conferences, big events...
