FameLab is back! Held annually in over 30 countries, a host of Dublin partners are teaming up with the British Council once more to bring FameLab to the region. 

Armed only with their wits and a few props, the top newest voices from the world of science, technology, engineering and maths will deliver three-minute talks on weird and wonderful science concepts. Expect to hear anything from why people are taller in space, to wasps that live inside figs, and how there are good guys and bad guys when it comes to vaccinations.

The top two from the FameLab Dublin heat will go on to represent the region at the FameLab Ireland national final in April 2019.

Dr Niamh Shaw will be MCing on the night and we'll have half-time entertainment from Bright Club's Pauline Shanahan

So, encourage your curiosity and get a snapshot into the world of science, engineering, maths and technology at this entertaining and exciting event!
