FameLab’s new digital-only format, allows you to hang out with the brightest minds in science from your living room.
With most of the world hanging at home for the foreseeable future, loads of iconic STEM brands have had to cancel or post-pone their IRL offerings. But in the last few weeks we’ve also seen some seriously cool tech-led innovation, with brands re-thinking the way that they deliver their physical experiences so that audiences don’t have to leave their living rooms.
Global science communication competition FameLab is the latest science contest to do the digital-only thing. Produced in Australia by the Foundation for the Western Australian Museum in partnership with the British Council, the comp finds and mentors young, early STEM career researchers, encouraging them to share their stories for the chance to win a cash prize and place at the FameLab International Final in the UK.
“FameLab puts young scientists centre stage to help us gain better understand on new discoveries and new technologies,” said British Council Director Australia Helen Salmon.
They’ve invited the entire STEM-verse to crash their Western Australia Semi Final on April 6, where 13 talented researchers will tell their science stories in three minutes or less via short videos. No jargon, no power-point, and definitely no need to dress up – think of it like home-delivered STEM content, fresh, fun and to the point.
