Learning meets laughter, facts meet fun and education meets entertainment.
Science Slam is a competition that combines scientific presentations with the entertainment value of stand-up comedy. In a Science Slam, scientists and researchers present their work in a fun, engaging, and understandable way in front of a live audience.
In the EAPC Science Slam, presenters have 3 minutes, to convey their message and make an impact on the audience. Props are allowed, only if they can be worn on the body or carried on stage with your own hands. NO POWERPOINTS ALLOWED! The goal is to make your science accessible, interesting, and entertaining for everyone.
The live audience are the jury. They want to be dazzled and impressed by your sparkling, funny and surprising way of teaching them about your work. They will vote for the winning Slam, and the winner receives a really nice prize!
