Science meets Comedy at UHasselt first Science Slam
Curious about how scientists can ‘dazzle’ you with their research in only six minutes? Come and see for yourself at UHasselt’s first Science Slam on Thursday, December 4!
Eight teams/researchers will enter the arena and try to win your hearts and minds with a 6 minute pitch on a research topic of their choice. Expect a lot of creativity, humor and – of course – some remarkable, fascinating and highly relevant scientific facts!
Jury and audience will eventually decide the winner(s) of Science Slam 2014. The best pitch is awarded with a team building activity worth 500 euro (Jury Prize) or 200 euro (Audience Award).
