Science Story Slam

Science Story Slam In-Person

Watch talented young storytellers compete for $5000 in cash prizes! The Science Story Slam is an invitation to all US high schoolers to share their stories about science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM), live at the Cambridge Public Library. Listen to stories set in fictional or factual scenarios that explain a scientific concept, or gripping accounts of how a scientific discovery came about, or more personal accounts of how the pursuit of science has impacted the storyteller. Finalists will compete for $5K in cash prizes in front of celebrity judges including New York Times reporter Kate Zernike and best-selling author Paul Tremblay!

This event is part of Cambridge Science Festival, a celebration showcasing the leading edge in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.
