The judging pannel includes professionals in the field of science, science communication and media. They are looking for somebody who can present a topic with clarity and charisma.
Content: The content of the presentations MUST be scientifically accurate. If the chosen topic has controversy or uncertainty around it, then the presentation must acknowledge the opposing views. The scientific topic presented should be well chosen to suit the audience.
Clarity: Clarity is critical for effective science communication. The structure of the talk is important; it needs to ensure that the audience and judges can easily follow the talk and that they are left with an understanding of the chosen scientific concept.
Charisma: The audience and judges should be left inspired and enthusiastic about science. The presenter must have that hard-to-describe but unmistakable quality which we call charisma. The winner will be the one who makes the topic easy to understand, entertaining and exciting. They need to not only able to communicate complex information, but also share their passion for it.
12 finalists will be selected from the regional heats. The winners of the reagional heats will then enter the final.
