Additional Information

Last month, for our two-year anniversary we had a giant celebration of the varied ways people become scientists. But that's not everyone. That's not most people. Actually, the vast majority of people aren't scientists. So, this month, we're hearing stories from people who *didn't* become scientists -- people who got in titanic battles with science, who skirted the edge of the unscientific backwaters, or who struggled mightily to keep the relationship with science going, and failed. 

Join The Story Collider for "I'm Not Science," six stories of people who's lives went other ways. Jun 20th, 8pm at Union Hall, in Brooklyn.

About The Story Collider:
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 atThe 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
