Take Part in the Over-Ambitious Demo Challenge at Cheltenham Science Festival

We’re on the hunt for new contestants for the 2020 Over-Ambitious Demo Challenge at Cheltenham Science Festival.

In previous years, our audiences have been wowed by ballet dancing on cornstarch, crazy bubbles, steel-cutting sausages and lots lots more.

Demos need to be fun, exciting, surprising and overly ambitious, keeping the audience in suspense until the very end!

In previous years, contestants have prepared a 12-minute demo for the first round, and a 5-minute demo for the second round.

The event will be on the evening of Sunday 7 June.

How to apply:

Please complete the registration form at: https://cheltenhamfestivals.wufoo.com/forms/xpi5l2o0ygkoyg/

The deadline for applications is Monday 24 February at 12 noon.

Cheltenham Science Festival will cover your travel and one night accommodation (if required) and an honorarium.

If you have any questions, please drop a line to: science@cheltenhamfestivals.com
