Abstract: In the present research paper, the researcher has attempted to find out whether the Post Graduate science teachers of higher secondary schools are aware of using the storytelling method for communicating both curricular topics and new scientific research findings to the students. A sample of 50 Kendriya Vidyalaya PG science teachers of different states had been selected through purposive sampling. The significant finding of the study is that storytelling for science communication at higher secondary level is not popular amongst the PG teachers. Science storytelling sessions are very limited due to various reasons. Storytelling either through audio or visuals or both has the potential to be useful in both urban and rural areas to make science popular among the students and public alike. The gap between the scientists and common people can be bridged with more efficient communication like storytelling.
