UPCOMING MAY 2O2O

MACH 33: Caltech│Pasadena Playhouse Festival of New Science-Driven Plays

MACH 33: The Caltech│Pasadena Playhouse Festival of New Science-Driven Plays energizes the conversations about scientific, mathematical, and technological questions by staging readings of new, unpublished, unproduced plays. The readings are open to the public and present a discussion with Caltech/JPL scientific panelists after the show. Our casts and crews feature professional actors and directors as well as students and members of the Caltech/JPL community. Festival playwrights have the unique opportunity to work with science advisors from Caltech and JPL and dramaturgs from the Pasadena Playhouse.


STORYTELLING FOR SCIENTISTS (SFS)

Wednesdays, October 2 - December 4 2019

To be effective leaders and communicators, scientists need to be able to explain and perform their science. Through a series of writing exercises, improvisation, and performance/vocal techniques, students will explore/discover/write new narratives for the ever-changing 21st century global landscape to culminate in 2 (5-7 minute) talks recorded in front of a live audience December 6, 2019.

Classes will take place on Wednesday evenings at Ramo Auditiorium and will be instructed by Brian Brophy. Open to all in the Caltech/JPL community

Here is a video to a few of our recent Storytellers at Convocation 2018
