Ten of this year’s best up-and-coming science communicators will compete for a £1,000 prize as well as a coveted spot at this year’s annual International FameLab Final, held at Cheltenham Science Festival in June.

In time honoured FameLab tradition, each competitor has just three minutes to present a scientific concept of their choice and will be judged on the content, clarity and charisma of their presentation. Previous FameLab alumni have gone on to careers in broadcasting and performing, including Maggie Aderin Pocock (BBC Sky at Night) and Steve Mould and Matt Parker (Festival of the Spoken Nerd). Which science stars of tomorrow will emerge from this year’s final?

The FameLab UK final will be compered by the Science Museum’s resident comedy duo, Punk Science, and judges on the night include Lewis Dartnell and the Science Museum’s very own Roger Highfield.
