Berlin Science Week is ongoing through Nov. 10, bringing scientists from all over the world to Berlin to collaborate, to engage in dialogue, and celebrate science in events throughout the city. Topics range from artificial intelligence to medicine to climate change.
We’ve been joining in the dialogue throughout the week with our series of matches, introducing scientists from different fields for the first time to find what they have in common. Today’s match, however, is a little different…
The final conversation is between Rackeb Tesfaye and Edward Kang. They’re both finalists in the international forum “Falling Walls Engage” and have come to Berlin to present their projects. Rackeb lives in Montreal, Canada and is the executive director and founder of Broad Science, which aims to make science more inclusive and engaging through audio storytelling. Ed lives in Chicago and is the co-founder of The Laboratory Collective, an initiative that strives to make “science as beloved as stories.” What did they talk about? Listen in and find out!
