Wednesday 22rd February
Arts 2 Lecture Theatre
PhD Show Off is a chaotic open mic night for PhD students with something to show off about their research.
What happens on the night?
We start at 18:00, with an introduction from compere Steve Cross, and the night runs in two halves, each an hour long. The signed-up performers take to the stage to show off their science. They might:
Show a film they just made
Try out a new demo
Practice a new science comedy set
Tell us about their new discovery
Perform an 9-minute play about science
Play their new song about protons
Tell us what they’ve been up to
Predict the future
Give us a taster of their science-themed Edinburgh show
Read us their latest science poem
Try out a bit of a new science lesson on us
Play us a short radio documentary
Experiment on the crowd
Read us a blogpost
Perform an interpretive dance about science
Or anything else…
Every set lasts 9 minutes or less. There’s a 20 minute intermission and have an hour of picking each other’s brains over beer and to form new plans and partnerships before closing time.
There will be plenty of refreshments provided for the night to help facilitate the conversation!
