Excited by science?

MRS students certainly are … eleven of our PhD students took part in Glasgow Science Centre’s Inspire and Challenge communication and public engagement training course. Enthused by the variety of science communication techniques, students learned how to engage an audience and how to structure hands-on activities for the public. Many of them have already put what they learnt into practice and we’re looking forward to their next presentations to us.

MRS encourage all its funded researchers to engage with the public, sharing their research. We’re proud to support our students through courses such as this and, involving them in our annual Meet the Researcher Showcase event for high school pupils is just one of the ways open for them to spread the word about their good work.
