FameLab returns to Cambridge - January 2014

FameLab is coming to Cambridge to search for the new voices of science and engineering.

The FameLab competition is designed to help people communicate science and engineering to a wider audience, whether in schools, through public events or through the media. From specialist science teachers to statisticians, anyone with a flair for communication who’s currently working in or studying science, technology, engineering or maths, can take part. Contestants will have just three minutes to explain a complex science, engineering or mathematical topic in a dynamic and engaging way to a panel of judges. The winner of the Cambridge heat will get the chance to take part in a weekend Masterclass with experts in media & communication skills, before vying for the title of FameLab UK champion at the National Final on 23 April 2014 at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London where they will have the chance to take home £1,750 to further their career.

Past winners of FameLab have gone on to travel the globe, perform in festivals and feature on national TV and radio, and many combine public-facing activity with ongoing research. All finalists become part of a global network of science communicators.

Heat 1: 7pm - 10pm,16 January 2014 at The Portland Arms, Cambridge (please arrive by 6.30 pm)
