Science slam = an evening of serious science with a touch of comedy! There are two main organisations in Germany, you find them here and here. Jesse has been an active slammer for some years now, winning multiple slams, and hopes to hit the stage again after the corona crisis is over. I highly encourage members of my team to participate in science slams, since it's a fantastic opportunity to learn how to communicate basic science to a broad audience!
