FameLab was set up in 2005 by Cheltenham Festivals in partnership with NESTA to find and nurture scientists and engineers with a flair for communicating with public audiences. Since 2007, thanks to a partnership with the British Council, FameLab has also gone global.
The competition is made up of 3 stages:
Entrants will start their FameLab journey taking part in Regional Heats and Finals. If successful, all regional finalists will move on to participate in a mandatory Masterclass and the UK National Final in London.
The winner of the national competition will then move on to compete against 25+ other international finalists for the title of FameLab International Champion at Cheltenham Science Festival in June.
