Improv and Environmental Science Workshops

Why Improv?

Improv requires communication skills (e.g., listening, responding, storytelling) that are beneficial to engaging with others in science, particularly in collaborating to develop research ideas. We believe this is an innovative way to teach young people and have them practice these skills as they learn about environmental science topics. And… it’s fun!

Student Workshops

These workshops teach students how the basic principles of improv (e.g., “Yes, And;” listening and responding; building on others’ ideas) can be applied to collaboration and communication in science.
