Science Slam – Clear the Stage for Science

Berlin Clusters of Excellence | Emma Sicher, Maryam Karimian, Gilberto Solorza Buenrostro, Johannes Heß, Tobias Klee, Ramprasad Misra, Benjamin Lang, Guillermo Olicón Méndez, Tania Fernandez del Valle Alquicira

The Science Slam of the Berlin Clusters of Excellence

Slammin’ like there’s no tomorrow – at our cluster science slam, scientists try everything to entertain their audience, regardless of whether the subject is e.g. mathematics, neuroscience or active material. The sky is the limit when it comes to what’s possible. Costumes, props, movies, PowerPoint presentations or other experimental setups – it is all allowed. Only time sets the limits – every slammer will have ten minutes at most. And the audience will decide which presentation is best!
