Building Science Communication Skills through Improvisational Theater

We will be offering a series of improvisational theater workshops to enhance communication and collaboration skills for science. The program brings together local secondary students and CU students studying topics in environmental science to engage in improv lessons and problem-solving discussions around environmental challenges.
The program provides the post-secondary students with techniques to communicate about their science and trains them as effective messengers, and it immerses secondary students in environmental science through a creative process.

A professional development workshop will also be provided for Teachers across Colorado at the Colorado Science Conference in November, 2018, to demonstrate and explore ways in which science teachers may engage their students in improv exercises to build their science skills.

Workshop details: Coming soon!

This is a public program.
