What is FameLab?
FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world. Young scientists present and explain a scientific concept to a general audience in three minutes. FameLab has been running in South Africa since 2013 and has influenced hundreds of young scientists from various sciences and research institutions across the country. For some, FameLab was their first experience in science communication. For others, it provided a platform to further develop and explore their passion for communication. In reflecting on the past 5 years, we chatted to some of the past winners and runners up to find out what they are doing now.
By taking part in FameLab, young scientists have the opportunity to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, gain invaluable communication skills, and meet amazing like-minded people. Importantly they also become part of an increasingly exciting network of scientists and engineers able to clearly and imaginatively explain their science to the general public.
In 2022, FameLab in South Africa is made possible by a partnership between Jive Media Africa and the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement, and numerous institutions hosting heats.
