FameLab...American Idol for Scientists!

Think American Idol...for scientists! FameLab is a panel-judged competition to find the new voices of science across the world. Started in 2005 in the UK, this event is part of "season 2" here in the US. Ten young scientists will spin tall-but-true tales of climate change, the origin of right- and left-handedness, the formation of galaxies, the dawn of agriculture, and much more - in 3 powerpoint-free minutes each!
And while the judges deliberate, we'll be treated to stories from NOAA's Lead Scientist for the Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program, Charles Littnan, who will explain how National Geographic’s Crittercam technology reveals the seals' daily lives and helps protect them.
Come cheer on these brave souls - vote for your favorite - and journey with them to the cutting edge of exploring Earth and beyond!
