FameLab Australia

Attention early-career researchers…

FameLab, Australia’s international science communication competition, has returned in 2015 for another round of ‘talking science’.

Last year, 45+ of this country’s most impressive young researchers presented their research on stage, adhering to FameLab’s special rules of ‘No Powerpoint! No lab coats! No jargon! in their quest to represent Australia at the FameLab International Final in the UK… this year we are putting another 40 on the stage.

If you’re passionate about science, and want to see how some of Australia's promising researchers are building presentation and media skills with the chance of a trip to the UK’s leading science festival… read on.

The first heat was hosted at Sydney's Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences this month where 10 young researchers showed why science is fascinating with topics from kidney disease to Feline AIDS, and from visual illusions to how to make lamb chops more juicy. The next heat will be at WA Maritime Museum, Fremantle WA on April 9.
