Hi Alaina

Hope you are well, and looking forward to catching up at the RZSS event. I am actually emailing regarding another event which Heriot-Watt are hosting - Famelab!

The event is taking place in the postgraduate auditorium @ HWU on the 8th December from 2-4pm (further details on our webpage,<https://www.hw.ac.uk/research/engage/famelab.htm> and via Cheltenham Festival<http://www.cheltenhamfestivals.com/about/famelab/>).

As you may know, Famelab is a National and International competition aiming to find the best science communicator in the country and around the world! The competition is organised by Cheltenham Festival and the British Council, and has already seen more than 5000 young scientists and engineers participating in over 25 different countries

Heriot-Watt will be hosting the Edinburgh Heat, as well as coordinating the Scottish Final. The Edinburgh heat is open to anyone age over 21 who works in STEM (so do share with good science communicators you know, I'm sure there must be loads at the zoo!).

We would like to invite you to be on our judging panel for the competition, joining representatives from Universities and STEM areas.  I attach the rules and judging guide from Famelab, and there will be further guidance on the day. It would be really great if you could make it, as your experience in science communication would be really useful for the contestants. Can you please let me know asap! If you can't, and have any other suggestions from the zoo please let me know!

Many thanks
