FameLab Australia

The British Council's International Science communication competition is back in 2015, with the national finals taking place this May at the Western Australian Maritime Museum, Fremantle.

Over March and April we have been scouring the nation looking for the brightest young scientists who can prove that being a geek doesn’t mean you can’t hold a crowd!

Some of Australia’s top early career scientists have just three minutes to tell you about their research. A creative approach is encouraged but contestants must follow the two cardinal rules of FameLab – no PowerPoint and no slides. Props allowed.

Have you ever pondered the science behind why some people are allergic to shellfish, or how atomic clocks work?  Join  us and  you will hear the scientific experts explain complex concepts, in a language that everyone can understand.

On the night, we will be announcing the National winner who will go on to represent Australia at the FameLab international competition at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK in June.

Attendance is free but you must register. Visit www.FameLab2015.eventbrite.com.au to secure your seat.
