Matea Vlatkovic finalist in the Famelab competition

Posted on 19-3-2015

To quote Matea:
Famelab is the competition that is organised by British Council in more than 25 countries. During 3 minutes of oral presentation without use of power point, just using your body or some small probes you need to be able to explain your research to the general audience. There are several stages of the competition: The first one is regional - so in my case first I had to pass the Groningen heat, after which are semi-finals that were in Amsterdam during which we had a masterclass how to improve our presentation skills and practicing giving interviews.
There we had to present our presentation in front of the jury committee who have chosen 10 of us to go to the finals which will be held in Leiden 21/4. The winner goes to UK to the world competition during the science festival.
