March 05, 2013
Fady Archie, an Egyptian master student of the RWTH Aachen and currently doing his research at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, has won the 1st prize in the Science Slam Competition “FameLab NRW” on Saturday, March 2nd, in Bielefeld.
“FameLab – talking science” is an international competition to find the best new talent in science communication. Fady and his competitors had just three minutes to explain their research topic. By explaining why the Titanic would have been safe, if it was built with the steel produced nowadays, Fady convinced a judging panel and the non-scientific audience of his talent to be a science communicator.
By winning the 1st prize – connected with 300 euros and a media training in Berlin, Fady qualified for the next nationwide competition on May 4th in Bielefeld. There, he will compete against the winners of the other federal states. The winner of this competition will go to the international finals in Cheltenham (UK) on June 4th-9th.
