FameLab 2019

FameLab 2019

Albert Einstein once said, “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough” … And that’s exactly the premise of the international science competition FameLab Australia.


Charismatic researchers explain their work to a non-scientific audience in just three minutes, with no PowerPoint and no jargon but props are encouraged! At semi-finals across the country, Australia’s top early career researchers will use their use their charm, charisma and knowledge to battle it out for a place in the Australian National Final, to be held in Perth in May.


The FameLab Australia winner will go on to compete in the FameLab International Final at the UK’s Cheltenham Science Festival in June 2019, alongside scientists from over 30 countries.


FameLab is a celebration of science, created by Cheltenham Festival and produced in Australia by the Foundation for the WA Museum with international partner British Council.


Australia’s Science Channel is proud to be the official media partner for FameLab Australia 2019.


Congratulations to Paola Magni from Murdoch University on being announced the #FameLabAus National Final winner and audience choice winner for 2019! Check out all the incredible finalists.
