All the lab’s a stage, and nowhere more so than at the heats of FameLab Oxford 2020! Each contestant has just three minutes to explain a concept on science, mathematics or engineering without the use of Powerpoint – armed only with their wit and a few props. If you are interested in science and looking for a fun night out, this is for you! Previous FameLabbers have included astrophysicists, teachers, magician-turned-psychologist and a toga-wearing mathematician. As always, the 2020 heats will bring together the brave and the bold, the hilarious and awe-inspiring to charm and astonish you and battle each other for entry through to the FameLab Regional Final in March.


Lynne Pebworth – Trustee, The Oxford Trust

Sam Hatfield – FameLab 2019 Oxford regional winner and national runner up

John Runions – Professor of Cell and Molecular Biology at Oxford Brookes University
