The idea behind “Show your Science” is an abc of presentation: how to be audience-friendly, brief and convincing. You will learn to give an entertaining, ten-minute talk on your subject of research, pitched to a wide - even non-scientific - audience.

The way to reach your audience’s hearts and minds is to tell your story: explain what you do, how you do it and above all, why it fascinates you (and should interest them!).

In the workshop we will explore language and rhetorical techniques, story-telling and audience involvement, body language and voice – and whatever else you need to find your unique style as a presenter.

After completing the course you may even join Kiel University’s “Science Show” and practise your presentation skills by giving your talk to a much wider audience, during Kiel Week and at the Night of the Profs for example.



Applications are welcome until 24 September 2017 via our  online-portal.
