This event is a focus group for students aged between 18 and 20 y.o. without a strong interest in science.
The purpose of the event is to gather information on issues, motivations and challenges in engaging with young adults with Public Engagement activities in Science and Research.
The event is supposed to last for about one hour and a half (maximum two hours) and will be mostly run as an informal, friendly discussion on the issues young adults face whilst engaging with events related to strictly academic subjects.
Although the venue (Manchester Museum's The Study) does not allow food or hot drinks to be consumed on its premises, each participant will be given a thank you treat at the end of the session!
If you are aged 18-20, don't have a strong interest in scientific subjects, but are willing to know more about projects run to engage the public in different subjects - please, come to the event!
