One of the distinctive characteristics of human beings is our ability to tell and understand stories. Communicators and popularisers are aware that storytelling is an effective way to bring scientific knowledge to society as a whole. They know that stories can stimulate and maintain the public’s interest, taking science out of the laboratory and bringing it closer to everyday life environments.

But the role of storytelling in science is not limited to the realm of public communication. From an anthropological point of view, storytelling has played an important role in the evolution of the human species, providing competitive advantages and facilitating adaptation. Additionally, stories have also helped to shape scientific thinking itself, forming structured sets of ideas to engage the public and facilitate the advancement of knowledge.
