FameLab is a communications competition designed to inspire and entertain by breaking down science, technology, and engineering concepts into enlightening, easy-to-understand presentations. It engages young scientists from around the world, challenging them with the task of encouraging curiosity about the latest research. The young scientists answer peculiar and pertinent questions from ‘How do smells affect our emotions?’ to ‘Can we transform carbon dioxide into something useful?’.
More than 5,000 young scientists and engineers in over 25 different countries take part in this global competition. The ultimate goal is to make it to the Cheltenham Festival and British Council co-produced FameLab International Final in June.
In the US, NASA has partnered with the British Council to kick off Season Three of FameLab this summer. The first regional heat is at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York.
