I haven’t written anything for a while, but I have a good excuse. I participated in FameLab, both British and Polish editions.
FameLab is an international competition for scientists, who want to communicate research effectively. The idea is simple: we have 3 minutes to talk about our favourite scientific concept. The stage is ours for 180 seconds, after which we are judged on the content, clarity and charisma.
The ‘3C’ rules are pretty self-explanatory.
- The topic must be interesting for the audience and possible to convey in three minutes. One of the most common mistakes the contestants make is trying to explain all we know about microbiology during one short speech – not possible.
