Event Description:
Sponsored by NASA, FameLab begins with a preliminary day of competition, coaching and camaraderie that is all about science communication. Early career scientists from diverse scientific disciplines craft a three-minute, PowerPoint-free talk on their research or a related topic and deliver it in a supportive environment to judges who give constructive feedback. Participants will spend the afternoon in a unique workshop with faculty from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, learning two foundational pillars within the Alda Center: Improvisation for Scientists and Distilling Your Message. Finalists will present their talks for the public on Friday, April 17 at 4:30 pm, followed by the announcement of the regional winner and audience choice nominee.

Entry into the competition, and reservations to attend the public event, which is free of charge, can be made through the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science.
