  • What is Science Slam?
    Science Slam is a one-day, free, weekend event that engages our families in activities to show that science is approachable, accessible, and fun! Activities are organized, designed, and run by parents, teachers, or volunteers from outside institutions.
  • When is Science Slam 2024?
    Saturday, April 27th From 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. At Westwood Charter Elementary School
  • Is Science Slam like a traditional science fair?
    No! A traditional science fair is centered around student projects. Students participate in a competition to showcase an experiment they have performed. In contrast, the Science Slam centers on adults creating experiences for children. WWC parents, community groups, camps and scientists lead exhibit demonstrations throughout the school yard. Students get to roam freely (no signups required) to each exhibit to watch and participate in demonstrations.
  • Do I have to stay the whole time?
    No, you're welcome to come for any amount of time - whatever works best for your family.
  • What is there to do at Science Slam?
    Throughout the event there will be fun science demonstrations and exhibits to interact with and explore. We will also be raffling off prizes at the event!
  • Who can attend Science Slam?
    Slam is open to the community, including students, family & friends. Come out to support STEM education! It’s free!
  • Is Science Slam for all ages?
    Yes! All exhibits on the yards are for all ages. There is also an area called kinder corner where the experiments will be geared slightly more towards younger ages.
  • Can my TK/Kinder visit the areas outside of the Kinder Corner and can my older kid visit the Kinder Corner?
    Absolutely yes!
  • Can I drop off my kids?
    No, all kids need to have some sort of adult supervision. If you can’t make it, maybe coordinate with another family.
  • Do I need to sign up for activities?
    No! Just come to the event and walk around at your own pace.
