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 the kickoff to "Season 3" here in the US. Ten young scientists will spin tall-but-true tales of exoplanetary atmospheres, extreme environments here on Earth, the possibility of life on an icy moon in the outer Solar System, and much more - in 3 powerpoint-free minutes each!
And while the judges deliberate, we’ll be treated to stories of how science meets science fiction from science advisor to Hollywood, Dr. Kevin Grazier.
Come cheer on all these brave souls - vote for the audience choice award - and journey with them to the cutting edge of exploring Earth and beyond!
Tuesday, July 29th • 7pm • Experimental Media and Performing Arts Theater • RPI Campus • Troy, NY
FREE • Reception to follow (open bar!)
