This year a team of scientists were trained by comedians to perform STEM comedy on stage at the Sydney Comedy Festival, Australian Museum, and at Splendour in the Grass, and in 2023 they’re looking to do it again!
Applications are now open for the STEAM Room 2023 program, where participants will receive free workshops and mentoring from leading comedians and science communicators (including Dr Karl!) to turn their funny STEM stories into an entertaining stand-up performance.
The STEAM Room are looking for applicants who are passionate about their work and looking to bring it to a wider audience. Whether you’re an established professor, a budding PhD candidate, or a STEM professional who hasn’t been back to uni in years, they want to hear from you! This is a great opportunity to learn new skills to present your research to a huge new audience.
Applications close 26 September 2022.
