Description

Hosted by superstar astrophysicist, Dr Alan Duffy, the FameLab National final returns to Western Australia on 10 May!

Throughout March and April, we've been scouring the nation looking for the brightest up-and-coming researchers who can communicate their work in just three minutes, armed only with their wits and a few props.

Join us at the Octagon Theatre in Perth on Thursday 10 May at 6 pm for a 6.15 pm start and a FREE night of surprises, laughs, drama and genius as the crème de la crème of Australia’s science communicators go head-to-head and battle it out to be crowned winner of FameLab Australia 2018!

Have you ever wondered if we'll be able to live on Mars? Or if 3D printing could be the second industrial revolution? Join us at this FREE event for an exciting snapshot into the world of science, engineering, maths and technology as some of the country’s most captivating researchers explain fascinating concepts like these in an unpredictable and enlightening way!

Presentations will be judged by an esteemed panel – Lyn Beazley AO (Former Chief Scientist WA), Helen Salmon (Director, British Council) and Robyn Williams (ABC Science Presenter) according to FameLab’s 3Cs: content, clarity and charisma. The winner will be announced on the night and will go on to represent Australia in the world's largest science communication competition - the International FameLab final - at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK in June.

Please note. Tickets are FREE but must be pre-booked in advance!

Drinks will be available for purchase.
