As time goes by, I see the presentation at a teen cafe being much more like a TED talk – the best ones – which focus on story telling. Great TED talks are that it is focused on answering one interesting question – not two, three or four questions. Just the big ponderous one. Finally, the best TED talks are not crammed with high density information, they convey the story with words that paint clear images in the listener’s mind and stimulate emotions. Finally, TED talks are short but rich, and lead to very interesting questions.
I am attaching a short document that explores story telling in science as a resource for this session.

Here is the link http://www.cmu.edu/student-org/pcr/media-files/pcr-sessions/pcr-storytelling-techniques.pdf

I will also put it in our Resources section on the website.
