FameLab, a science communication competition co-sponsored by the British Council and NASA, is back for its third season. Early career scientists, all from a wide range of disciplines, will present their research to a panel of judges in only three minutes—without a PowerPoint slideshow or additional supporting materials. The winners from each regional competition will continue on to the US tournament in April 2016 when they will compete to continue on to the international final at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK in June 2016.

The upcoming online competition invites any and all eligible participants to compete without having to worry about travelling to an event. 

How to Participate

After registering to join FameLab online, participants may upload their 3-minute presentations to YouTube and send the video link to daniella.m.scalice@nasa.gov by March 16. The judging process will then take place online on March 18. Three judges will review each submission live and provide feedback on camera before selecting the winners.
