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.
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.
FameLab in South Africa is made possible by a partnership between the British Council, the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement and Jive Media Africa.
