FameLab, the world’s leading science communication competition, is back!
Held in more than 30 countries, the British Council and Cheltenham Festivals have teamed up again to bring FameLab to Ireland in 2020.
Armed only with their wits and a few props, the newest voices in science, technology, engineering and maths from across Ireland gave individual 3 minute talks on some fascinating, and sometimes bizarre science concepts.
Jonathan spoke to winner of FameLab Ireland 2020, Simon Spichak, ahead of The FameLab International Semi-Finals which are going ahead on 11th and 12th of November and will be held online.
