MRSEC Slam Contest

On January 28th, 2022, at the request of our MRSEC program directors, each of the 19 MRSEC funded centers will present a five-minute slam via Zoom.

CCMR presenting student(s) will be selected via internal contest. The idea is to be creative, funny, using any art form (e.g. art, drama, graphics, music), while talking about your science to a non-expert audience. This can be an individual or group effort. An example of a slam which our NSF directors liked can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSQusza4VqA

  • Please send an email to ccmr-info@cornell.edu by 1/5/22 if you plan to work on a video. We may try to have a brainstorming session in mid-January to provide ideas and feedback.
  • Video submissions should be about 5 minutes in duration and must be submitted by noon, Tuesday 1/18, 2022 to ccmr-directors@cornell.edu via shared link (e.g. Box or Google drive).
  • Send questions to your IRG leaders or to ccmr-directors@cornell.edu.
  • The winning entry will receive $500 with prizes for all other entries. Our winning slam presenter will present live via Zoom at 1pm January 28, 2022.
