FameLab is held annually in over 30 countries and a whole host of Cork partners are teaming up with the British Council once more to bring it to the region.
Armed only with their wits and a few props, the top newest voices from the world of science, technology, engineering and maths will deliver three-minute talks on weird and wonderful science concepts. Expect to hear anything from why people are taller in space, to wasps that live inside figs, and how there are good guys and bad guys when it comes to vaccinations.
FameLab Cork is delivered in partnership with UCC and Tyndall, and research centres APC, Connect, Infant, IPIC and MaREI. The top two from the FameLab Cork heat will go on to represent the region at the FameLab Ireland national final in April 2020, which for the first time, will also take place in Cork.
All those studying, researching or working in science are welcome to participate. If you are considering taking part or encouraging your students to do so, Famelab Cork is also offering a free Science Communication Training session in UCC on Friday 24 January.
