What is a Science Slam?

Based on Poetry Slam, Science Slams were successfully developed in Germany in 2006 and have since gained popularity around the world. The core idea is that students and researchers from various scientific disciplines present their research topic to a diverse audience in a given time frame (10 minutes) in an informative and entertaining way in English. The performance is then assessed by the audience based on a set of criteria, which include the scientific content, as well as the communication and performance skills of the “slammer”.

What is in for you?

Apart from attractive prizes and the unique experience of presenting your research work to a relatively large audience, you will have the opportunity to prepare your presentation in a workshop given in advance. You will be coached during a preparatory workshop on Monday, May 11 for your individual performance and thereby ensure that you will not only have fun while on stage, but also enhance your presentation and communication skills at the same.

How to become a “Slammer”?

Please send your research topic and a brief outline of your research topic to Johanna Teubner by May 6, 2015.
