Passionate about Science? Love to Communicate...or Want to Learn How?
New frontiers await scientists in every field of research, whether on land, under the sea, or in space. From our origins as humans to the origins of our Solar System, from climate change to the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe, sheer curiosity and passion for knowledge will always keep us at the cutting edge of exploration. In today’s media-intensive environment, your ability to convey your science can reshape the face of science exploration and discovery.
FameLab asks…how are you exploring Earth and beyond?How It Works
At regional heats throughout the US, join other early career scientists from numerous disciplines and compete to convey your research or related science concepts. Each contestant has the spotlight for only three minutes. No slides, no charts, just the power of words and any prop you can hold in your hands. A panel of experts in both science and science communication will do the judging.
Winners from the FameLab USA regional competitions will face off in April, 2016 for a grand prize and the chance to compete with peers from around the world at the FameLab International Final in the UK in June, 2016.
Beyond the competition element, the heart of FameLab is to improve your communication skills! At each preliminary event there will be a workshop with training in the principles and practices of good communication.Register
