Spring Break Science Slam

March 16, 2023 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$12 – $15

Welcome to the wonder of Science Slam! We are Vancouver’s most epic science showdown. Sit back, relax, and watch as our competitors battle to achieve science communication fame and glory.

What exactly is a science slam? Based on the format of a poetry slam, a science slam is a competition where speakers gather to share their science with you – the audience. Competitors have five minutes to present on any science topic without the use of a slideshow and are judged based on communication skills, audience impact and scientific content. Props and creative presentation styles are encouraged — no slides!

Interested in participating as a Slammer? Please fill out this form by February 18. Thank you!

Doors open at 7pm, event begins at 7:30pm.

Early bird tickets are only $12 until March 9! General admission is $15.

See you there!


The venue is wheelchair accessible. The main cabaret room is accessible through a ramped entrance. We also have a wheelchair accessible washroom in the space as well.

Venue is a 19+ venue with non-gendered bathrooms.

Masks are not required but they are encouraged.

Science Slam acknowledges that this event takes place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil Waututh Nation. Many of our attendees, Science Slam included, are guests of these territories and must act accordingly.

Science Slam is an inclusive event, as a result hate speech and abuse will not be tolerated.
