FameLab Science Communication Workshops
Early career researchers are invited to attend free training designed to build science communication skills, and learn how to bring your research to the FameLab stage.
Eligible FameLab contestants are able to join this session delivered by leading science communication experts Dr Merryn McKinnon and Dr Will Grant from the Australian National University’s Centre for the Public Awareness of Science.
The training programme will be a free workshop for eligible FameLab contestants in each participating state. This includes:
- researchers or post-doctoral fellows working in STEM within universities, research institutes, government bodies and industry who have completed a PhD within the last 5 years
- students who are currently undertaking MSci or PhD qualifications in STEM.
The science communication training is a workshop process based on improvisational theatre games underpinned by the latest research, providing a fun, highly interactive and engaging environment.
The National Training Delivery is a partnership with the Australian National University Centre for Public Awareness of Science.
