Event Details

Experience the thrilling showcase of scientific talent and communication at FameLab Northern Ireland’s live final, featuring ten finalists competing with charm, scientific expertise, and innovation in a three-minute window.

The format of FameLab is deceptively simple; on the competition stage, participants are given just three minutes to share their scientific research or work with a general audience, armed with just simple props. This live event takes place in front of a panel of expert judges, as entrants compete for the title of the UK’s best science communicator.

Participants may only use props they carry on to the stage – and PowerPoint is not allowed! The winner is the speaker who best demonstrates FameLab’s three C’s – content, clarity, and charisma, broadly defined as follows:

  • Content – Does the talk have structure and a creative narrative?
  • Clarity – How does the contestant bring the topic to life and make it easily understandable?
  • Charisma – How does the contestant interact with their audience (body language, eye contact, delivery?)

The winner will compete in the final at the 2024 Cheltenham Science Festival
