01 Dec FameLab – Aberdeen Heats
FameLab is a global competition which aims to find the very best communicators of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Over 20 countries now compete and this is your chance to be involved!
We are looking for people passionate about STEM to come along and compete in the Aberdeen heats for a chance to go forward to the Scottish final*. You’ll have three minutes and only what you can carry with you to explain a STEM concept.
Those successful at the Scottish final will go through to the UK final and be given a special Masterclass training trip.
We will be providing free training to help you hone your science communication skills and perfect your 3 minutes.
The heats will be open to a public audience so you can bring your family and friends for support!
