Communicating Science Data through Creative Acts
There is a world of science data that reveals a lot about the world we live in but is this data always objective and unbiased? Participants will see what stories they can find and tell, by becoming ‘Reporters from the Future’.
Science data leads to new inventions and informs government policies and decision-making. Many people assume that data is objective and unbiased – but is this really so? Like a game of ‘Broken Telephone’ as information is spread, for example through social media, this message often gets distorted. In this workshop, participants will get to play with science data. We have chosen data that tells about water pollution in Finnish lakes and the types of activities that may or may not help to improve them. Participants will see what stories they can find and tell, by becoming ‘Reporters from the Future’. Does everyone tell the same story, or how do our own interests and experiences affect what we tell?
