Description

What's it about?

This lunchtime-to-lunchtime course is an intensive training and engagement experience which will upskill participants in public engagement, science communication and evaluation skills. By the end of the course, participants will have taken part in a real public activity in central Cambridge as part of the Cambridge Science Festival and will have met experts from various partner organisations that could faciliate future public engagement opportunities. The course is led by Dr Steve Scott of the Wellcome Genome Campus Public Engagement team and Dr Jen Scott from the University of Aberdeen.

An important part of this course is taking part in an evening public event from 19:00-20:30 on 20th March 2019.
