For any active or aspiring young scientists out there who are going to be in the Houston area between the 17th-20th of March, sign up for the FameLab competition at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference! FameLab is something like American Idol for scientists… Sponsored by NASA and National Geographic, it’s a fun-filled day of competition, coaching, and camaraderie that’s all about science communication!
Winners from the regional competitions advance to the Final in April, 2014, and the winner there goes on to compete with peers from around the world at the FameLab International Final in the UK in June, 2014.
Even if you’re not planning to attend LPSC, you’re welcome to participate. The competition rounds and workshop are on Sunday, March 17th from ~10am-4pm. 10 participants will be selected to compete in a special evening event during LPSC on Wednesday, March 20th from ~6-9pm. There is no cost for any of the FameLab events, nor do you have to register for LPSC.
