Event description

Description


So you've got a beautifully designed activity, a venue, and a team to deliver it. You're science festival-ready, right?

Almost. There is an art to running a successful drop-in activity; it also requires common sense and some health and safety know-how.Come to this workshop to get tips and guidance on:

  • How to entice people into coming to your activity instead of just walking on by

  • How to engage different ages

  • Learning from visitors (there are some knowledgeable people out there!)

  • Preparing your opening chat

  • Managing busy and quiet times

  • Working in partnership with demonstrators

  • Health and safety (with a focus on working with vulnerable groups)

This workshop will be delivered by Eureka Edinburgh.

Eligibility

This workshop is aimed at individuals who will shortly be doing a drop-in at Edinburgh International Science Festival (or similar). Places are available free-of-charge to staff and students from universities in Edinburgh.
