FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world, run in over 30 countries worldwide. FameLab identifies and nurtures science communication skills in young scientists, who are challenged to engage and entertain public audiences and communicate their science in under 3 minutes. Talks are fun and engaging, making science relevant to everyone. Heats are run by institutions across the country to select semi-finalists to attend a master class run by an international trainer.
