The communication competition, FameLab Northern Ireland, returns for 2016

Are you Northern Ireland’s next big name in science? You’ve just three minutes to impress…

The exciting science communication competition, FameLab Northern Ireland is returning for 2016 — with the British Council in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Science Festival and Cheltenham Festival, hosting the final at The Black Box, Belfast on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016.

Held annually in over 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States, FameLab sees the top new voices from the world of science and engineering deliver short 3-minute pieces on bizarre and pertinent science concepts – anything from why men have nipples to how 3D glasses work. Presentations are then judged according to FameLab’s golden rule – the 3 Cs: Content, Clarity and Charisma.

The winner of FameLab Northern Ireland will go through to the UK Final  at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London.

Budding science communicators have until Monday, December 14th 2015 to enter.
