he authors work at CoSTEP (Communication in Science and Technology Education and Re- search Programu), Hokkaido University, which is the educational organisation that nurtures science communicators. CoSTEP provides three different yearly learning courses, which are Comprehensive, Selective A, and Selective B. The two “Selective courses” are composed of 27 e-learning lectures and intensive workshops. Selective Course A weighs on designing face-to- face communication experience. Selective Course B weighs on scientific writing.

In this paper, we focus on the workshop of Selective Course A, which was a three-day inten- sive workshop where participants made science show programmes, held from 26th to 28th of August 2011. There were 20 participants, which were divided into four groups who pro- duced four science show programmes of 20 minutes each.
