FameLab is a live science communication competition that aims to discover charismatic early career scientists who can inspire people to see the world from new perspectives. It is an initiative to engage in STEM and STEAM. Run annually in Australia and in over 25 countries across the world, the Foundation for the WA Museum ran virtual finals for the 2020 National FameLabs.
The FameLab National Winner this year was Cody Frear from The University of Queensland. Cody’s presentation ‘Out with the old, in with the Noo-Noo’ using the the Teletubbies’ vacuum cleaner character Noo-Noo, to explain how paediatric burn injuries can heal faster and reduce scarring using a ‘vacuum’.
