About Breaking Science 2018

What is Breaking Science?

Breaking Science is an annual science communication competition for young Utrecht researchers. They have just three minutes to present their research or a scientific concept from their field of study to a panel of judges. These judges will select the best 2 participants based on 3 criteria (content, clarity and charisma). The winners of the heat will then continue on to the final.
