What is a Science Slam?

Science Slam is a competition of the best science communicators in which motivated young researchers give a concise and comprehensible 8 min presentation of a research topic. Anything goes! The slammers can use presentations, stage props or ask the audience to do a short experiment. To win the audience’s vote, the slam must be understood by a layman, fascinating, and of course entertaining.

Become a Slammer!

We are looking for slammers for the 9th Science Slam Basel on 4. October 2019!
Whether you're in math, physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, history, psychology, social studies, arts or any field we missed here, you are welcome to present your work. If you have a topic that you can explain in an 8 min talk to a large lay audience, contact us: scienceslam@unibas.ch Your talk can be in German or English.
