Science Riot

Returning to Atlanta in 2020

Scientists and professionals interested in a daring public speaking training program can register now for Science Riot Atlanta!

Science Riot is offering free science communication workshops with immersive training in “late-night” stand-up comedy writing and performance. The workshops are spread over three weeks, culminating in a showcase event where you will deliver your talk live on stage to a crowd of real-life people!

STEM professionals (all careers welcome) will undergo 4.5 hours of hands-on training with our comedians to hone a 5-7 minute comedy talk about a scientific topic. Even if you think your topic is mind-numbingly dull, we will help you find the humor and a way to connect with public audiences.

Program Dates:
Lesson 1 – February 2nd
Lesson 2 – February 16th
Lesson 3 – March 8th
Public Showcase – March 12th @ The Highland Ballroom
Public Showcase – March 26th @ Zoo Atlanta
