FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world.

If you think you can explain a scientific concept to a general audience, in just three minutes, FameLab's the competition for you! You could become the new face of science, represent your country at the FameLab International final in the UK, and open doors to global opportunities in science communication!

Applications for the 2017 competition are now closed

Thanks to all those who entered FameLab 2017! We're in the process of reviewing your applications and will be in touch with you shortly to inform you of the next steps. 

Are you a spectator rather than a competitor? Why not come along to one of our FREE FameLab events in March and April to see our semi-finalists explain seemingly unexplainable scientific concepts live on stage? Visit the ‘What’s on’ page of our site for details. Each night is sure to be full of laughs, drama and surprises – don’t miss out!
