Part of the annual Cheltenham Science Festival, FameLab UK is the country’s biggest science communication competition. Haseltine Lake is supporting this year’s FameLab UK’s South West heats, with the Bristol event being held on Wednesday 20 January 2016, compered by At-Bristol’s Ross Exton.

Competing in regional heats first, the overall UK winner will compete against over 25 other contestants from around the world at The Times Cheltenham Science Festival in June 2016 and will receive a £1,000 cash prize and £750 to spend on a science communication activity.

Commenting on the partnership, Lesley Evans (CEO), says, “We are delighted to be part of FameLab for a second year. At Haseltine Lake, we are incredibly passionate about supporting and inspiring young science talent. We are keen to encourage the next generation of scientists and engineers, ensuring they can discuss complex subjects in a clear and concise way. We wish all the entrants the very best of luck!”

In preparation for the Bristol heat, FameLab UK will host a training Masterclass in Bristol on Monday 18 January 2016. The session will provide assistance for entrants planning their talks.
