_dsc9622-2

Love science?
Hate science?
Ambivalent to the concept?

WHAT’S UP?

We’re looking for 8 wonderful people to perform 9 minute sets of any kind about any kind of science!

I DON’T THINK I’D BE ANY GOOD AT IT

No experience necessary! We’re looking for first-timers!

We’ll give you a platform in front of the single nicest audience of slightly tipsy science nerds that London has to offer in one of the nicest pubs that London has to offer.

It’s perfect if you’re a scientist eager to get out more, a science teacher who wants to have an audience of adults for once, a science fan who wants to try a stage out for the first time, a musician or comedian with some experimental science material to try out or ANYONE AT ALL WHO LIKES FUN AND SCIENCE.

I CAN PERFORM ANYTHING?

You can check out performances on our YouTube channel for examples of what people have done in the past.

We’ve had everything from physical theatre and cake-based mimicry demos to Breaking Bad inspired drag-kings and science hip-hop(whatever that is).

The only limitation is your own imagination (and nothing that might make our wonderful tech cry).

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS SCIENCE SHOWOFF?

For the very first time, we’re looking to completely fill our lineup with BME performers (and that’s not subscribers to the Body Modification E-zine).

Let’s not beat around the bush here. Public Engagement in STEM is pretty poor at being diverse. Between the leaky pipelines of academia and the constant stress that comes from being asked “why aren’t you a doctor yet?”, ethnic minorities aren’t fully represented in the world of science outreach.

As part of the Talent Factory, the idea was floated by Alex. He was duly punished by Steve making it happen and forcing him to MC part of the show.

ALRIGHT, WHERE CAN I SIGN UP?

You can sign up here and we’ll be in touch to tell you more about it.

If you have questions about it, drop us a mail, or bug us on twitter.

See you there!
