FameLab National Final – Western Australia
Join us at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, Heath Ledger Theatre on Wednesday 8 May 2019 to see semi-finalists from Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia tell their amazing science stories live and free, as national finalists.
You’ll see some of the country’s brightest minds tell their science stories in just three minutes or less with no props, no jargon, and no PowerPoint. On the night, 12 brilliant researchers take to the stage to deliver short and sharp tales of their work explaining why their work matters to the world in order to become the next FameLab National Champion.
FameLab is the world’s leading science communication competition created by Cheltenham Festivals in the UK. The global competition finds and mentors young STEM – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – researchers with a knack for communication to share their stories with the world.
Contestants are armed only with their wits and a few props to describe their research – the result is an unpredictable, enlightening and exciting way to encourage curiosity and find out about the latest research.
In 2019, FameLab is produced in Australia by the Foundation for the WA Museum with international partner the British Council and national founding partner, the WA Museum.
