FameLab Academy Videos 2016

FameLab Academy is a competition for Year 9 students in Gloucestershire sponsored in 2015 and 2016 by EDF Energy.

Students have just 3 minutes to explain a scientific topic in a dynamic and engaging way to a panel of judges. They are judged on content, clarity and charisma.

In 2016, the finalists covered topics ranging from static electricity to snakes and even the Kepler Space Telescope. View all videos in our FameLab Academy 2016 playlist on the Cheltenham Festivals YouTube channel or discover our nine finalists’ presentations below.
