Hall of FameLab 2014

Friday 26 September 2014 -
20:30 to 21:30
Flett Theatre Natural History Museum, London. Also available on live stream above.

Come join us for an hour of short charismatic FameLab talks, Friday September 26, 20:30-21:30, at the Natural History Museum, London. The event will also be live streamed on YouTube, visible at the top of this page.

FameLab presents scientific topics such as why men have nipples, how to train bees to sniff bombs and the neuroscience of sign-language, in understandable and engaging three-minute talks. No PowerPoint slides are allowed, so the scientists must rely on their knowledge, enthusiasm and charisma.

Six of the best FameLab alumni from across the world will be coming together for the Hall of FameLab 2014, hosted by Quentin Cooper, as part of Science Uncovered for EU Researchers’ Night.

Each will deliver a three-minute talk on a scientific subject, judged by the audience on their content, clarity and charisma. The audience will decide the winner with a live vote.

The six FameLab speakers will be:

- Padraic Flood (FameLab International winner 2014) 

- Lucy Thorne (FameLab UK national finalist 2012) 

- Mahmoud Aboukhedr (FameLab Egypt winner 2011) 

- Jitka Cejkova (FameLab Czech Republic participant 2011) 

- Vladimir Bozhilov (FameLab Bulgaria finalist 2010)

- Adam Murphey (FameLab Ireland winner 2014)

Hall of FameLab will take place in the Flett Theatre, in the Natural History Museum. Upon arrival at the museum there will be maps available with directions to the theatre, and staff on hand to give directions.


Researchers' Night and Science Uncovered

On Friday September 26, the EU will celebrate Researchers’ Night with a series of events across Europe in which scientists will show their work to the public in fun and open demonstrations. Hall of FameLab is part of Science Uncovered, an EU Researchers’ Night event at the Natural History Museum, London. 

Science Uncovered is a free event with no need to book tickets or RSVP. Throughout the evening you can have a go at science experiments such as extracting DNA from strawberries and creating your own earthquake! You can also chat to NASA about chasing asteroids, or chat to some scientists over a drink at one of the bars. For more information, please see the links below.
