At the Hall of FameLab 2019, scientists from across Europe will present three-minute science talks in an engaging and charismatic way. The event will host an evening of science talks, demonstrations and exhibitions and is a celebration of the global science competition.
Tyndall PhD student and FameLab finalist Luiza Wasiewska has the opportunity to participate in Hall of FameLab during European Researchers Night in London. Luiza won the Cork heat of FameLab this year in February and continued on to the national final in Dublin.
Held annually in over 30 countries across the globe, FameLab is the world's largest science communication competition. It challenges future scientists, engineers and mathematicians to explain a complex idea in a straightforward and engaging way in 3 minutes. Presentations are judged according to FameLab’s "3 Cs": Content, Clarity and Charisma.
Luiza will discuss the Nature Reviews Consensus statement – “Scientists’ warning to humanity: microorganisms and climate change”, in essence - the connection between microbiology and the very hot topic of climate change and how understanding their connection can help us to address the issues connected to climate change.
