From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
"The tones balanced stand-up funny and powerfully confessional... The crowd's reactions veered from belly laughs to pin-drop silence."—Andy Beta, The Wall Street Journal
"The experience was incredibly cathartic, and having people come up to me afterwards and tell me how interesting and moving they found my story was as gratifying as any compliment I have ever received about my research."—David Carmel, Nature
Joshie Berger, Reality TV Personality
Hai-Ting Chinn, Mezzo-Soprano
