The Story Collider - "IAmScience"
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 8:00 PM EDT
The Bell House, Brooklyn, NY
21 years and over
In May the Story Collider celebrates two years of personal stories about science -- and we're doing it by declaring IAmScience -- stories of people's twisted paths to lives in science, diverse and thrilling stories span generations and challenge traditional ideas of who can be a scientist and what can inspire a scientist's work.
As a special treat: Music by The Amygdaloids -- by day: scientists, by night: rock stars singing songs about love and life peppered with insights drawn from research about mind and brain and mental disorders.

Joy Hirsch, Neuroscientist
Joe LeDoux, Neuroscientist and leader of the Amygdaloids

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
