What exactly is a science slam? Based on the format of a poetry slam, a science slam is a competition brings together researchers, students, educators, artists, and communicators 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 engagement, and scientific accuracy. Props and creative presentation styles are encouraged!
