Passionate about science? FameLab 2016 is here!

FAMELABLove telling people about your research? Want to inspire the next generation? FameLab needs you!


The International competition in science engagement is back for another great year of head to head communicating.  Providing researchers in academia and industry the chance to engage a wide public audience, FameLab is a great way to get your research out there, test your skills, or just have a laugh! Previous winners have gone on to travel the globe, and appear on radio and TV.


Contestants have just three minutes to convey a science, maths or engineering concept in an exciting and engaging way. If that sounds like your sort of challenge, FameLab wants to hear from you. The competition is open to anyone currently working science, technology, engineering or maths. More details can be found here.


UK competitors have the chance to win £1750 in prize money and a weekend Master Class with experts in media & communication skills, not to mention a chance to appear in the FameLab International Final at the Cheltenham Science Festival in June 2016.


The Newcastle heats are taking place at the Centre for Life on the 11th February 2016. The heat will run in the evening from about 8pm. To sign up please fill out this registration form.


There will be an optional training session at the Centre for life, on the 3rd February from 12pm-2pm. If you wish to attend, or have any questions contact Duncan at
