Can you explain your science in 3 minutes?

Entries are now open for the British Council’s FameLab Australia science communication competition. We’re calling all South Australian PhD students and Early Career Researchers to get their applications in now!

FameLab is a live science communication competition that aims to discover charismatic early career scientists who can inspire people to see the world from new perspectives. It is run annually in Australia and in over 30 countries across the world.

If you think you can explain a scientific concept to a general audience, in just three minutes, FameLab’s the competition for you! You could become the new face of science, represent your country at the FameLab International final in the UK, and open doors to global opportunities in science communication.

Applications for FameLab will close on 15 February.  More info and apply here.
