Science Showdown!

07 Mar 2017

Stand up for your field and grab a slice of not-humble pie at free open mic event

Isn’t science awesome? But are you convinced your field is the most awesome of them all? Do you save lives, discover truly fundamental properties of nature, master logic and reasoning, create mind-blowing technology, understand how the Universe works, or something along those lines?

Well come and say so at the first ever Science Showdown!

CRUK PhD students and PostDocs are hosting an Open-Mic Science Night that welcomes every passionate scientist to give a short talk about why science is awesome, at the Manchester Cancer Research Centre on Thursday, 30 March at 6.30pm.

The speakers will give a short talk of exactly π minutes (yes, 3m 14s), not exceeding two slides, to talk about something super interesting in science. This doesn’t have to be directly related to your own projects and props are always encouraged!

Drinks, snacks and a prize for the most outstanding talk will be provided.
