Science Stories Africa is an initiative that trains scientists on the use of storytelling as a communication tool that can move hearts and minds. Led by their experienced and passionate training team leader Patricia Nanteza. Scientists learn how to talk about their research findings in simplified story form that is easily understood and appreciated by non-scientists.
Patricia is a science communicator who is fascinated by the question of behavioural change in communication. She was exposed to storytelling during a short fellowship at Cornell University in 2017 and a seed was sown. Patricia later founded Science Stories Africa – an initiative that trains scientists on the use of storytelling as communication tool. She also works with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture as a science writer.
