What do oceanic sharks, toilet paper, and stethoscopes have in common? Find out by watching our own Charlotte Birkmanis presenting in the Western Australian semi-finals of FameLab 2020!
FameLab is an international science communication competition that inspires people to see the world in a new way by encouraging theatrical explanations of scientific concepts. Usually 3-minute presentations are done live, on stage to a general audience, with no jargon or visual aids. But this year, FameLab 2020 is live online!
Qualifying as a semi-finalist, Charlotte broadcast her research from her lounge room! Whatever the result Charlotte is already a winner as, for the first time, all semi-finalists will be awarded media training and mentoring for the duration of 2020.
Everyone is now invited to vote for the Audience Choice, but be quick as voting closes this Thursday. So, tune in and vote here for your favourite presentation – it might even be Charlotte’s! 😉
We congratulate all FameLab competitors around the world for sharing their work with us!
