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.
