It's September, so it's back to school, back to work, and BACK TO SLAMMING! Catch Vancouver’s most epic science showdown as competitors battle for science communication fame and glory.
Doors 7:00pm, Show 7:30pm
What exactly is a science slam? Based on the format of a poetry slam, a science slam is a competition where speakers gather to share their science with you - the audience. Competitors have five minutes to present on any science topic without the use of a slideshow and are judged based on communication skills, audience impact and scientific content. Props and creative presentation styles are encouraged!
Whether you're a researcher, student, educator, artist, or communicator, our stage is open to you. If you've got a science topic you're researching, or just a topic you're excited about, send in an application! If you're not sure about an idea, just ask!
