Sam Hatfield to represent Oxford at the Famelab international final

Sam Hatfield has won the Oxford final of the Famelab science communication competition. The competition challenges participants to deliver a complex scientific subject or idea in only three minutes to a live audience and a panel of three judges. Participants are judged based on three criteria: content, clarity and charisma. Sam delivered a talk about chaos theory and the difficulties of hurricane prediction, focusing on the case of Hurricane Sandy. He will go on to compete at the national finals at the Cheltenham Science festival in June. If he is successful, he will then represent the UK at the international finals the same week.
