FameLab 2021 - Heats


Could you be the next Brian Cox or Maggie Aderin-Pocock? 

Here’s your chance to hone your science communication skills with the longest running science communication competition in the world – FameLab. 

For the first time, the Oxford competition will be hosted by the History of Science Museum, the world's oldest surviving purpose-built public museum.

How it works 

You will have just three minutes to explain a concept on science, mathematics, or engineering, showcasing your content, clarity, and charisma! 

No Powerpoint, just you, your ideas, (and any props you can carry with you).

Sign up for the heats

The Oxford heats will be taking place online on 10 and 11 February from 5-7pm.

To take part, you'll need to be:

  • 21 or over
  • working or studying in science.
