FameLab Hall Of Fame

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 and to hear their thoughts about science communication and FameLab.
