For those of you who have never experienced the wonder of Science Slam, welcome! We are Vancouver’s most epic science showdown. Watch as our competitors battle to share science with their captive audience. What's on the line? Pride, fame, eternal glory, and occasionally a prize or two.

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!

If you're interested in competing, please apply using the following link: or email us at [email protected] Evolution-themed topics preferred. If you're not sure about an idea, just ask!

Doors open at 5pm, event begins at 6:30pm. We'll see you there!
