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 museum.
You will have just three minutes to explain a concept on science, mathematics or engineering without using PowerPoint – showcasing your content, clarity and charisma!
The Oxford heats will be taking place online on 10 and 11 February from 5-7pm. Participants need to be 21 or over and working or studying in science.
Competitors will have the chance to go onto national and even international finals, win prizes, opportunities and receive training.
