The British Council in Vietnam has officially introduced the FameLab 2016 competition in Vietnam.
FameLab is a science communications competition for young scientists, engineers, and researchers and has attracted more than 7,000 participants from over 30 countries. FameLab in Vietnam aims to find a Vietnamese representative to attend the FameLab International Final in London in June. This is the second year it has been held in Vietnam.
The completion has had success in training and guiding individuals on methods to approach the public and add to their understanding of scientific topics, which are valuable and useful but not always easy to comprehend.
Participants wishing join the competition will receive consultation from experts at the British Council and be provided with training on presentation contents, skills, and methods. The final round of FameLab 2016 is expected to be held from April 20 to April 22 at Nguy Nhu Kon Tum Hall at the Vietnam National University at 19 Le Thanh Tong Street in Hanoi.
In addition to its impressive architecture, the lecture hall has witnessed historic developments in Vietnam’s higher education. It has honored generations of leading Vietnamese lecturers, scientists, professors, doctors and scientific academics and is considered the ideal space for young scientists and other youngsters to express their enthusiasm and passion for science.
FameLab is a chance for scientists from all disciplines to develop the skills they need to share their passion for the field with others in an innovative and exciting way. The best science communicators from Vietnam will attend the FameLab International Final in London, to make new connections, exchange ideas, and test out their communications skills in an international forum.
