Dylan Thomas Centre
We are delighted to host the Swansea heat of FameLab, the UK’s biggest search for the new voices of science and engineering. It aims to discover charismatic, up-and-coming scientists and engineers who can inspire people to see the world from a new perspective.
Expect to hear anything from why men have nipples to how cabbages keep warm in winter at this entertaining event. Contestants will have just three minutes to pitch a concept in science or engineering to the panel of judges. Each judge will assess the finalists’ presentations on three qualities: content, clarity and charisma. The winner will go to the regional final in Cardiff, with the chance to take home £1,750 in the FameLab UK final in London.
