Don’t forget, you have until Friday 19 February to apply for FameLab 2016.

The British Council Australia invites scientists, mathematicians and engineers to take part - applicants can be honours students, graduate students or up to five years post-PhD, researching in any field of science, maths or engineering.

Contestants in this science communication competition have just three minutes to convey a scientific concept on stage in an original, entertaining style.

They are judged on content, clarity and charisma.

Two JCU researchers have won the Australian competition and gone on to the international competition in the UK – Michael Smout in 2014 and Sandip Kamath in 2015.

50 Australian semi-finalists will win presentation training sessions.

15 finalists will participate in a two-day professional development course.

The Australian winner will appear at The Times Cheltenham Science Festival, UK, June 2016.

Here’s Sandip’s winning presentation from 2015: https://vimeo.com/129411073
