Join College of Science (COS) students, alumni, faculty and friends as we hear from talented student researchers as they battle for a cash prize! The stakes are high as the top slammer from each preliminary (prelim) round competes in the Grand Slam for a $1000 prize.
Learn about the research students are engaged in and kick off your weekend with a great night of science entertainment. Heavy appetizers and a few laughs are guaranteed.
As a special feature, the COS Alumni Chapter hosts a meet and greet before the main event from 6:30-7pm, where Mason alumni and students can interact and chow down before main the event gets started.
At Mason, a science slam challenges young scientists to prepare a presentation of fewer than 10 minutes, about their scientific research, for a non-expert audience using any entertaining format they wish. The goal is to solicit the most laughter and applause from the audience though scientific integrity and accuracy are expected and appreciated.
