Ufa residents are invited at a Science Slam, which will be held in Ufa in the entertainment complex "Ogni Ufy" on Sunday, the 27th of September.

Another participant, the graduate of the department of morphology and physiology of humans and animals of Bashkir State University Mars Galautdinov develops applications for smart phones with which you can self-diagnose your vision acuity.
The winner will be determined by a sound level metered according to the applause of the guests.
The Science Slam is a new format of intellectual leisure, which came to our country from Germany. Young scientists in the form of a 10-minute stand up talk about their research. Each stand up must be interesting, clear and witty. In Ufa, a similar event will be held for the second time.
