Science showoff at the Summer Science Exhibition

Science Showoff

Part of the 2013 Summer Science Exhibition

Event details

The chaotic science cabaret event Science Showoff is coming to the Summer Science Exhibition this year. 10 science communicators, including some of the exhibitors from the exhibition, will be sharing their knowledge and entertaining you throughout the evening. Our host will be Steve Cross, geeky joke-teller and veteran of over 30 Science Showoffs. 

At Science Showoff anyone can communicate any kind of science in any way. They might tell jokes, play songs, perform demonstrations, talk interestingly, introduce videos, read poetry, or indeed any kind of performance at all. You can find out more about Science Showoff, and see the kinds of gigs they put on at or on Twitter at

More details about the line-up will be released shortly.
