Delivering a highly acclaimed International Science Communication Competition

FameLab Australia

Designed to inspire, motivate and develop young scientists to actively engage with the public and stakeholders, FameLab aligns with the Foundation’s objective to deliver engaging community and education programs, support ground-breaking scientific research and discovery and seek additional support for funding.

Now in its fifth partnership year, the British Council and the WA Museum, supported by the Foundation for the WA Museum, presented FameLab Australia. The Foundation provided logistical support and facilitated the McCusker Charitable Foundation’s ongoing commitment for this very popular competition as well as Woodside’s three-year commitment as a major partner.

Run jointly by the British Council and Cheltenham Science Festival in over 30 countries across the world, FameLab has become the world’s leading science communication competition for early career scientists who are trained in communication and presentational skills before competing to explain seemingly unexplainable concepts to live audiences without the use of presentation slides or technical aids.
