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!

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:
