This autumn the uk’s biggest search for science communication talent is on…
If you’re currently working in or studying science in the UK, and think you can explain a science, engineering or maths concept in an engaging way to non-scientists in just three minutes, read on! This is a great way to learn the skills and get experience in engaging public audiences.
Aspiring contestants can go along to one of the Fame Lab heats or submit their entries online.
You can come along to one of the heats and give a 3 minute presentation on a scientific subject of your choice. There will then be a regional final at each of the events, and if you get through you will need to give a different 3 minute presentation and answer questions so you need to make sure you know your ‘stuff’!
Your presentation should be pitched to a lay adult audience. Make sure your subject matter is well chosen, clearly presented, that your facts are right, and that you let you passion shine through! We accept the use of props (only what you can carry on stage, no set up time allowed) but NOT PowerPoint.
