McMaster Space Initiative: Science Slam

McMaster Space Initiative Science Slam
Wednesday, January 10, 2018 -
8:00pm to 11:00pm

This is call to all poets with a love for science! The McMaster Space Initiative has been in the lab for months trying to get proportions right to bring you… THE SCIENCE SLAM. To all our science guys and gals, bring your poetry and your science on stage this month, and send your bars straight out of the solar system. Compete for a chance to win cool prizes and be crowned Science Slam Champion.

There will be an OPEN MIC portion before the slam for students who would like to perform, but not compete.

(We accept poetry, music, etc. at this time of any theme)

Sign up to SLAM or OPEN MIC here:

Please also bring a canned good or non perishable donation for the Food Collective Centre, the food bank on campus operated by Mac Bread Bin.

A science slam is an academic event where scientists present their research work in a given time frame to a non-expert audience. A poetry slam is an artistic event where poets present their stories on stage within 3 minutes for an audience of general public. We wanted to create an event where scientists and artists can share the stage and their stories.

There will be two rounds in the slam, meaning students who wish to compete must come with two poems - memorization is not mandatory.

We would like to acknowledge the support from the Hamilton Youth Poets and McMaster Undergraduate Academic Astronomy Club for this event.
