Public “Women in Science” Slam

Science Slam

Thursday, 24 May 2018, 20:00 – open end
Venue: TU Berlin
Room: Lichthof

Moderator: Dr Marcela Uliano da Silva

Enjoy fascinating science in short exciting and vivid presentations by young female scientists who talk about their research.

The speakers offer non-specialist listeners insights into their latest research and try to infect the audience with their own enthusiasm for their project. It doesn’t matter whether it is a standard presentation or a live experiment – as long as it is entertaining.

The focus is not on the scientific value but more on the way of presenting it. The aim is to reach the hearts and minds of the audience who is also the jury who selects the winner of the evening.
