What is FameLab?
FameLab is an international science communication competition that challenges contestants between the ages of 21 and 35 to present a scientific concept/topic of their choice to the general public with clarity and charisma. Contestants have only three minutes to present their concept/topic, without slides and with only the props they are able to carry onto stage.
The competition is held in over 25 countries, including South Africa, and culminates in the winner of each country final participating in an international final at The Times Cheltenham Science Festival, Cheltenham, UK in July 2017.
