Science Slam

Good For:
One of the goals of the Mass General Research Institute is to help our scientists share their research in a way everyone can understand. We created our Science Slams as a fun way to exercise their science communications skills and think about their research in new creative ways. Check out these clips from one of our recent Slams to see how our scientists explain small fiber neuropathy and tethered capsule endomicroscopy!
  • The Mass General Research Institute was formed to support, promote and guide research at Massachusetts General Hospital—home of the largest hospital-based research enterprise in the United States. For this year’s Cambridge Science Festival, our researchers contributed videos, activity books, science experiments and much more. See all of our activities here.

About the

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of 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.

For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
