Science Slam – what is that?

At the Science Slam you get the chance to present your current innovative project or research in six minutes in a pointed, understandable and entertaining way. Without a beamer, but with creative aids (e.g. demo objects, extras, sound recordings to impressively convey complex content). Impressions at www.scienceslam.at

After 6 minutes everyone should understand:

  • what you are dealing with
  • why the topic fascinates you so much
  • what could come out of it one day

At the end of the event, the audience votes on the content, comprehensibility and creativity of each presentation and chooses the slam champion.
