A science slam is a scientific talk where scientists present their own scientific research work in a given time frame - usually 10 minutes - in front of a non-expert audience. The focus lies on teaching current science to a diverse audience in an entertaining way. The presentation is judged by the audience.[1] A science slam is a form of science communication.

Variants[edit]

Examples include: technical science slams,[2] health science slams,[3] sociological science slams,[4] junior science slams,[5] kid's science slams,[6] and binational science slams.[7][8]
