What is SciCom?

SciCom is “SciComm” which is also “Science Communications.” It is the science of communication and the communication of science. Science Communication is the difference between Neil deGrasse Tyson and Neil Greenfeld. Never heard of Neil Greenfeld? ...EXACTLY!

Why is comedy important for science communication?

Scientists want to be taken seriously. So why would we encourage comedy? Because comedy is a backdoor into understanding. For your audience, learning something new can be scary but, as my former boss Neil deGrasse Tyson used to tell me, “people can’t laugh and be afraid at the same time.” He then got back on his pegasus and soared into the sunset. Half of this story is true.
Comedy can demonstrate confidence, creativity, humility, empathy, and rapport. Audiences retain more information longer when they enjoy receiving it. Laughter increases energy, interest, and approval of a topic. Plus it’s just fun. I mean, why did you click on this site in the first place?
