FameLab and School Lab
We are building international networks of skilled science communicators and strengthening the science and society interface by creating a platform for students and young adults to become the new face of science in the internationally recognised science communication competition, FameLab and School Lab.
Entrants have three minutes to explain a science concept in a unique and entertaining way. It’s not about dumbing it down so a two-year-old could understand it; it’s about bringing it to life in a way that makes people want to love it.
In its ﬁrst year, FameLab Thailand had 200,000 social media engagements and 19,000 views on its Youtube channels.
A Life-Changing experience
Dr. Khaow Tonsomboon, the winner of FameLab Thailand 2016 chose FameLab as a stage to communicate his research into corneal tissue engineering. He is now a regular speaker on science communication at universities and schools, a presenter for science TV programmes and has been featured in a number of magazines and TV programmes.
“Famelab Thailand will call public attention to the needs of science and technology in developing the economy and society. It will therefore increase numbers of the generation to begin a career in science, technology and innovation.”
Dr. Pichet Durongkaveroj, Former Minister of Digital Economy and Society
