The RDI Programme in cooperating with the British Council introduced the FameLab Competition in Egypt since 5 years now. This activity lies within our objective of promoting science communication and spreading the innovation culture on the grass roots level.
Young Egyptians, between 18-35 years old, who are studying or working in science, technology, engineering or mathematics, can take part in FameLab heats by applying from 23 November – 31 December 2014.
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 jury panel will include eminent scientists, science communicators and public figures.
Interested participants must complete the registration form online on the British Council website http://www.britishcouncil.org.eg/en or the RDI Programme website www.rdi.eg.net and submit it to Famelab.firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday 31 December 2014.
