Please join us for the live webcast of the FameLab USA: Exploring Earth and Beyond National Final on April 5, 2014 at 7pm EDT. We'll be broadcasting live from National Geographic's Grosvenor Auditorium in Washington, DC!
At six regional heats throughout the US over the past 18 months, nearly 100 early career scientists from across the US have participated in FameLab USA. They each bravely took the stage for three PowerPoint-free minutes each, using only their words and wits to impress their peers, the judges, and the public. The science they've covered is broad, reaching from color-blindness to asteroids, from nudibranchs to black holes.
Now, the top eleven are converging in Washington, DC where they'll go head-to-head in one Final competition to determine who will be the US National FameLab champion. The winner will advance to represent the United States at the FameLab International Final and compete against the winners of FameLab competitions in 23 other countries!
