97% of scientists and engineers forget to start their presentations with a simple "hello"?
83% of Tech Entrepreneurs cannot correctly identify a smile?
23 students in STEM classes die of boredom every year?
But didn't some part of you believe it?
What happens when comedy and science communication have a baby? The world may never know. But when they underlie the foundation of a company, you get Hello SciCom!
Hello SciCom combines science communication and comedy to help intelligent people get their message across. To achieve this, we bring together a dynamic team combining the powers of science, technology, and entertainment.
Hello SciCom has written jokes for National Geographic, Stanford professors, billion dollar companies, and Barack Obama. Coming from a background in comedy, founder Sarah Rose Siskind was previously the head writer for Neil deGrasse Tyson's Emmy-nominated TV show, StarTalk, and has written comedy for UCB, Fox, CBS, and the White House Press Correspondents Dinner. She has a background in AI, robotics, and comedy, having served as the lead comedy writer for Sophia the Robot at Hanson Robotics. Sarah's written jokes about neuroscience for Seth Rogen and Martha Stewart. She combines her expertise across these fields to help good ideas be heard, and make smart people funny.
Hello SciCom is dedicated to making intelligent ideas entertaining.
We live in an attention economy. Ideas will only get funding or esteem if they are able to engage audiences. Humor can do that. Studies show humor helps with retention and likeability. Let us help you connect your audience with your ideas through the way we know best: comedy.
The coolest developments in the world right now are happening in science and tech, and yet those fields have the most to gain from being engaging, accessible, amusing, and just plain fun.
The Hello SciCom team transformed my half-baked idea for a virtual mushroom hunt into a beautifully conceptualized and crisply executed project that communicates my company's essence through science and metaphor. Carolyn and Sarah were a pleasure to work with every step of the way -- clever, effective, generous, and quick. In my official capacity as a collaboration consultant, I grant them the "Plays Well With Others" seal of approval.

Carolyn Ayers and Sarah Rose Siskind rocked out all kinds of writing for us, from Sophia's personality and chatbot authoring, to social media, to TV events. Not only did they bring wit; they brought insight, creativity, passion, and purpose. I deeply appreciate their super work, and look forward to many more collaborations with them into the future-- to the Singularity and Beyond!
