The Battle of the Scientists

Getting a broad audience excited about your research? The Battle of the Scientists  will teach you just that, by having you present your research to elementary school kids.

The Battle of the Scientists is a competition where five scientists each get 15 minutes to present their research at a primary school, to children ranging from the ages 6 to 12. The children themselves vote for the best presentation and are fully in charge of the whole event.

  • At the International School Ghent on March 9, 2018.
  • Each of the researchers selected to participate in the battle get to attend a free presentation training beforehand
  • Sign up before November 20, 2017 on
