Elizabeth Connor is the inaugural winner of the Prime Minister’s Science Communication Prize and founder of the KinShip, an expanding community of professionals who work together to help scientists communicate and communities connect with the wonder of science.
When Elizabeth was fourteen she had a dream of starting a renaissance that would start in Wellington, New Zealand and spread around the world reuniting science, spirituality and the arts and reconciling conflicts. Now, almost twenty years later, her plan is roughly the same.
Over the last decade her projects have included training workshops and storytelling competitions for scientists, STEM education initiatives, podcasts, publications and Magnificent Science Variety shows combining science with dance, theatre and music.
Her clients include Te Papa Tongarewa, Auckland Council, The MacDiarmid Institute, The Rotary Club of Wellington, Victoria University, Science Communication Association New Zealand and The Office of the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Adviser.
She has a Masters in Science Communication from Imperial College in London and an Honours degree in Physics and Maths from Victoria University of Wellington.
This workshop is an add-on to the 2015 SCANZ Conference.
Separately bookable half day workshops: bid writing, story telling, crisis management.
