Scientific Agitation engages researchers and society in two-way conversations through what makes us humans: emotions.

This empowers citizens to develop critical thinking, and it also influences researchers to carry out responsible research and innovation.

Hello. My name is Daniel Carrillo-Zapata, and I am a Scientific Agitator.

Would you like to learn how to tell impactful stories about your robot or AI system?

Discover how much value science communication can add to your professional journey in this hands-on workshop, where you will learn to find your story and communicate it to your audience using different ways, from short social media posts to full articles, videos and out-of-the-box formats.

Would you like to create unique and engaging experiences that have a two-way impact on both your audience and yourself? In these hands-on trainings you will learn how to think out of the box to merge responsible research and innovation with a touch of connection through emotions.

Project management

With over 5 years of experience designing, planning and delivering science communication and public engagement activities during my PhD in robotics and as a freelance, I can help you/your organisation achieve your communication goals in the most impactful way.

Public engagement

Are you looking for a speaker at a school, conference or public/private event? My interactive talks about swarm robotics, roboethics and Scientific Agitation, in which I use theatre, science busking, storytelling and gamification, have reached thousands of people so far.


Do you need a video produced for your science communication project? Or some expert advice on how to deliver such project? Or perhaps you would like to partner up in an artistic collaboration? If you require a bespoke service, I may be able to suit your needs. Let’s engage!
