Communicating Science Gong Show
Sunday August 5th, 2018

Scientists, sign up to reserve your spot to present today!

If you haven't joined us for a Gong Show before, here is what you can expect... Our goal is to connect Colorado scientists with community members so that they can learn about the amazing research being conducted in our state. This event is also an excellent opportunity for researchers to practice their broad communication skills.

To do this, we encourage scientists to give a short elevator pitch that succinctly describes what they do. If s/he uses too much jargon, goes off on a tangent, or the audience gets bored, listeners can "gong" the presenter with provided noise makers!

If you are "gonged": Don't panic! You won't get pulled of the stage by a hook; you will just have to stop and explain more clearly.

We will have prizes, beer, and "celebrity" judges so get ready to share your most exciting scientific stories!


- Present your research to non-scientists in a way that is exciting and educational. 

- 3 minute presentations 

- No slides (you are welcome to bring props)

- Jargon is ok as long as it is necessary and you define it well.

Questions? Please contact us:

RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook​!

On January 19th, 55 early-career scientists representing 11 Colorado-based research institutions traveled to the Colorado State Capitol to present their research to the general assembly. This poster session was a celebration of the diverse and exciting research being performed in our state and inspired conversations surrounding the impact primary science research has on our local economic, physical, and social health. To commemorate the event, Governor John W. Hickenlooper officially declared January 19th, 2018 as 'Early Career Scientist Day' in Colorado!

Science at the Market
June - October 2017


Our favorite public outreach events are the monthly science demos we host at the Dahlia Community Farmers Market! This year we learned about how the senses of taste and smell work together in flavor perception, explored the conditions that lead to a solar eclipse, explored how biosensors work, and made creepy halloween slime!
