Humor Me!

Today is a great day. I have four PowerPoint-heavy Zoom calls! 

-- No One Ever

Although we can't eliminate PowerPoint, we can help you improve your technical and scientific communication skills with humor by helping you be: 

-      Relevant
-      Concise
-      Actionable
-      And funny!

When used carefully, humor can improve your communication and presentation skills. Learn how to create and polish jokes and develop a personalized delivery style that enhances your ability to tell a story, connect to your audience and meet those KPIs!

Why Storytelling and Humor?

Science has shown that a story is a great way to connect with your audience and make your message more memorable. Our brains are hard-wired to remember narratives, and our eyes are programmed to roll back in our heads when data is spewed forth. Humor and improv are great techniques for embracing your awkwardness and breaking down communication barriers.

Why Science for Georgia

Our staff have been teaching science communications for 5 years, science stand-up comedy for 10 years, and science classes for 40 years! We know our science, our nerd comedy, and our communications.

Science for Georgia has developed a reputation for delivering audience-relevant best-practice technical information about literacy, chicken poop, food insecurity, clean water, and environmental justice. We routinely work with community advocates to ensure that policies and programs have maximum impact. With Humor Me! we combine 2 of our most successful programs into one unique offering:

  • Our stand-up Science Comedy Jazz Hands programs that  routinely sell out
  • Our academic Science Communication training at universities and colleges around Georgia teach students how to engage with audiences and tell their science story
