Abstract (Document Summary)

"We're going to be doing a lot of outreach (over the next year)," [Brandy Todd] said. "Science is fun, and we need lots more people in science, particularly girls."

Todd and her "minions" - science students who volunteered to help with her candidacy - performed a science exhibition with flaming liquids, smoking buckets of a solution and an ice cream-based concoction given to each of the old queens and judges, all set to the musical stylings of the "Weird Science" theme song. The crowd oohed and ahhed at the showing of chemical reactions put to song and dance.

The 2013 Slug Queen runner-up was Professor Bulbous Slimbuldore, who transformed into "Elton Slug" the rock star clad in white high-heeled boots to perform his own rendition of Elton John's "Crocodile Rock" that he dubbed "Slug Rock." Second-runner up was awarded to Gloria Slimem, who did a choreographed dance to Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." Both performances inspired the crowd to get up off their seats and dance.
