Got a science solution you want to share? Learn how to turn science into a story with professional comedian and presenter Alanta Colley and science communicator Dr George Aranda. We’ll equip you with the communication tools to sell science to any audience.

Alanta is a comedian (for tax purposes) and storyteller based in Melbourne. She dabbles in science communication, has bees, and regrets. She will be joining us fresh off the stage of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where she is performing her show 'Days of our Hives'. 

Dr George Aranda is a former cognitive neuroscientist who has moved from the world of brains to science education research and science communication. Now researching and teaching at Deakin University, he has broad interests in writing, social networking modes of communication, podcasting, science communication videos and understanding how scientists and their work are perceived in the world.
