Science centres and museums increasingly help visitors connect science to the people doing that science (scientists) - but they also have the potential to foster public engagement with the process of how science is done. This session will explore how storytelling and citizen science can be used to communicate the scientific process. Through a panel discussion, participants will hear from four individuals who: facilitate opportunities for the public to conduct their own research; and connect the public with scientists via storytelling. Panelists will discuss how they have used these methods to promote the public’s understanding of the scientific process, and how science centres and museums can incorporate these strategies. Following the discussion, participants will break out into small groups with panelists and 4-5 graduate students from across Canada, to discuss examples of science storytelling. Participants will collaboratively brainstorm strategies to successfully implement science storytelling and citizen science in their museum programming.

Les centres et les musées scientifiques aident de plus en plus les visiteurs à établir un lien entre la science et les personnes qui la pratiquent (les scientifiques), mais ils peuvent également favoriser l'engagement du public dans le processus de réalisation de la science. Cette session explorera la manière dont les narrations et la science citoyenne peuvent être utilisés pour communiquer le processus scientifique. Dans le cadre d'une table ronde, les participants entendront quatre personnes qui : donnent au public des occasions de mener ses propres recherches ; et mettent le public en contact avec les scientifiques par le biais de narrations. Les panélistes discuteront de la manière dont ils ont utilisé ces méthodes pour promouvoir la compréhension du processus scientifique par le public, et de la manière dont les centres et musées scientifiques peuvent intégrer ces stratégies. Après la discussion, les participants se répartiront en petits groupes avec les panélistes et 4-5 étudiants diplômés de tout le Canada, pour discuter d'exemples de narrations scientifiques. Les participants réfléchiront ensemble à des stratégies permettant de mettre en œuvre avec succès les récits scientifiques et la science citoyenne dans leurs programmes muséaux.
