FameLab Regional Heats (Dec 12th)

The Midlands region is holding Famelab 2017 heats on Monday 12th December 2016, from 18:30 in PureCraft Bar, Birmingham. FameLab is an international competition that challenges scientists to communicate their knowledge in short three minute talks. The University of Birmingham had a UK finalist in 2016. You can watch Alex’s performance here if you want inspiration. It would be brilliant if we could repeat that success.famelab-01

You’ll have three minutes to share your topic with a public audience. Remember, you cannot use slides and only use the props you can carry on stage. Entrants must be 21 years old or older, studying or working in science, engineering, technology, medicine or mathematics.

Full registration is here.

Sign up to perform your three minutes as soon as possible as spaces are limited. Audiences (including your students) can book free tickets here so feel free to invite everyone. Posters are attached for colleagues and audiences. For further info contact PERC stalwart Jon Wood: j.b.wood@bham.ac.uk [Internal Ext. 45081]
