FameLab challenges budding science communicators to explain a scientific concept to a general audience in just 3 minutes. To enter the competition, contestants must submit a video entry showcasing their communication prowess.
Several entrants will be selected from this pool to compete in the semi-finals in NSW, QLD, VIC and WA. The overall national winner will then receive an all-expenses paid trip to the UK to represent Australia in the international FameLab challenge. While in the UK, the winner will be mentored by industry elites and meet other young science communicators from around the world.
Last year, the Environment Institute’s very own Erin Fagan-Jeffries topped the nation and represented Australia at the international event. If you need some inspiration, you can listen to her presentation available as a podcast on ABC radio national.
Applications for FameLab 2017 are now open and close on 24 February, 2017. For more details, head to the FameLab website.
