Join the Massachusetts General Hospital Research Institute for a science slam at the Asgard Irish Pub & Restaurant in Central Square! Come test your skills as a science communicator or join the audience to learn about cool, cutting edge research as part of the Cambridge Science Festival.

Scientists will be challenged to explain their research and its significance in five minutes or less to a general audience. Can they get their point across in a way we can all understand? The audience will judge each presentation and choose a grand winner!

Audience members can sign up using the Eventbrite link (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mass-general-research-institute-science-slam-tickets-44374912558?aff=es2). Note: registering as an audience member does NOT require you to participate!

Free. This is a 21+ event. Light bites will be served, and there will be a cash bar.


Researchers of any discipline from institutions in the Boston-Cambridge area are invited to present! Participants are encouraged to think out-of-the box in terms of presentation format (i.e. no PowerPoint). We recommend signing up ahead of time, though we will take walk-in participants on a first-come first-served basis.
