FameLab, a science communication competition co-sponsored by the British Council and NASA, is back for its third season with 10 new competitors in San Francisco. The early career scientists, all from a wide range of disciplines, will present their research to a panel of three judges in only three minutes—without a PowerPoint slideshow or additional supporting materials.

The winners from San Francisco will continue on to the US tournament in April 2016. Winners from the US will then compete in the international final at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK in June 2016.

Come cheer on these brave souls, vote for your favorite, and journey with them to the cutting edge of exploring Earth and beyond!
