FameLab is a global science communication competition designed to inspire, motivate and develop young scientists and engineers to actively engage with the public and stakeholders.

The 2018 Ireland competition was won earlier this year by Sharon Omiwole, a medical student at University College Dublin.  Sharon will now represent Ireland in the FameLab international finals taking place at the Cheltenham Science Festival, UK from 06-07 June.  

Competing with 26 other countries across the globe, Sharon will attempt to emulate the incredible success enjoyed by Ireland in the competition in the past, following in the footsteps of Fergus McAuliffe and Padraig Flood, both previous winners of the acclaimed FameLab International title.  

Three semi-finals will take place on Wednesday 06 June with Sharon being last to take to the stage in the third semi-final at 16:30 (recordings will be posted following the semi-final events). The international final will then be live streamed on Thursday 07 June at 20:45.

So if you fancy a night of surprises, laughs, drama and STEM genius, be sure to tune in!
