FestEVOLVE 2018

Join us for FestEVOLVE – the celebration of Charles Darwin and the evolution of life.

Thursday, February 15 | 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Science Slam is Vancouver’s most epic science showdown. Watch as competitors battle to share science with their captive audience. What’s on the line? Pride, fame, eternal glory, and occasionally a prize or two.

What exactly is a science slam? Based on the format of a poetry slam, a science slam is a competition that brings together researchers, students, educators, artists, and communicators 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 engagement, and scientific accuracy.

  • 5:30 pm: Guided Museum Tour
  • 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm: Science Slam Competition
  • All evening: Hands-on activities where you can learn more about specimens in the museum and our current exhibitions

Admission is by donation after 5pm.

Daily, February 10 – 18

Evolution-themed interactive activities, museum tours, and more!
