FameLab, the world’s leading science communication competition, is back in Ireland! Held in more than 30 countries, the British Council and Cheltenham Festivals have teamed up to bring it to Ireland for the ninth and very last time in 2021 – and once again this year you can watch from the comfort of your own home!
Armed only with their wits and a few props, the top newest voices in science, technology, engineering and maths from across Ireland will give 3 minute talks on always fascinating, sometimes bizarre science concepts. Expect to hear about anything from ‘Why is milk white?’ to 'A belly full of bile' and 'Leave the buzzing to the bees'. Presentations will then be judged according to FameLab’s golden rule – the 3 Cs: Content, Clarity and Charisma.
The FameLab Ireland final will be an unpredictable, enlightening and exciting way to encourage your curiosity and give you a snapshot into the world of science. As a viewer, you will also have the power to judge contestants along with an esteemed panel from academia, media and industry. The winner of FameLab Ireland will then go on to represent the nation at the FameLab International Finals in November 2021.
Since 2013, FameLab Ireland has supported hundreds of researchers in their passion for communicating science to the general public. Now, for the final time, we’re proud to present the 12 newest voices in science, ready to amaze you with their knowledge, skills and charisma! So be sure to tune in to witness leading scientific research and interact with individuals in Ireland responsible for tackling some of the biggest scientific issues in the world today.
