The format of the competition is similar to talent shows on TV. Contestants have just three minutes to charm the audience and jury with clear scientific content, without use of audiovisual presentations. Presentations are judged on three criteria: Content, Clarity and Charisma.
Participants in the training are free to enter the competition, or just follow the training.
