FameLab: Exploring Earth and Beyond… at LPSC!

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 

CALLING ALL EARLY CAREER SCIENTISTS! PASSIONATE ABOUT SCIENCE? LOVE TO COMMUNICATE?
You are wholeheartedly invited to participate in FameLab: Exploring Earth and Beyond…at the 44th 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! At regional heats held across the US over the next year, early career scientists from diverse scientific disciplines craft a 3-minute, powerpoint-free talk on their research or a related topic and deliver it in a supportive environment to judges who give only constructive feedback. No slides, no charts—just the power of words and any prop you can hold in your hands. The heart of the whole thing is a workshop conducted by communication professionals to help participants enrich their skills. So unlike American Idol, everyone wins!

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. It’s quite the global sensation…

Even if you’re not planning to attend LPSC, you’re welcome to participate. We will host the competition rounds and workshop on Sunday, March 17th and the evening final competition on Wednesday, March 20th. Register or sign up for our mailing list to stay in the loop:

Please share this info with your peers, on your department listservs, on your FB pages, and beyond! Contact Daniella Scalice of the NASA Astrobiology Program if you have any questions at daniella.m.scalice@nasa.gov.
