Science surrounds us. Even when we don't notice it, science touches almost every part of our lives. At the Story Collider, we believe that everyone has a story about science—a story about how science made a difference, affected them, or changed them on a personal and emotional level. We find those stories and share them in live shows and on our podcast.
When the Deepwater Horizon well exploded, it changed the stories of those affected. Through response and recovery efforts, ongoing impact studies, and lessons from the past, this Story Collider will explain how the oil spill has changed our path and the stories we have to share.
The Story Collider brings together people from all walks of life to share true, personal stories of how science has affected their lives. Some of funny; some are dramatic. All are about the transformative power of science.
"The tones balanced stand-up funny and powerfully confessional... The crowd's reactions veered from belly laughs to pin-drop silence." -- The Wall Street Journal
