How can we explore different senses to communicate science? What are the limits for science communication? In this session, we will try to push the boundaries of IGNITE (a project to train scientists in Science Communication): we will brainstorm on how to communicate science in unusual and accessible ways. We will use different objects (such as pen and paper, building blocks, plasticine and musical instruments) to explore and test the understanding of scientific concepts specially for people with disabilities.
If you're interested in communication, science and technology, or accessibility issues/solutions in communication, come join us! Kids are very welcome.
