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 Australian winner will go on to compete 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.
