The British Science Festival was a fantastic opportunity to see the weird and wonderful places you can engage people in science! Locations for events ranged from lecture theatres on campus to a karaoke bar down in the lanes… certainly a wide range of options to attract anyone and everyone.
It’s a good idea to look into the unique places around Bournemouth that might be better for your research than on campus – you can see in the map that the British Science Festival had a large majority of their events in the city centre instead of up on the University grounds. This made it easier for visitors of the city to find the events they wanted.
It would be great for both community and BU to see all of Bournemouth town used to engage the public in the Festival of Learning – whether it is a night time event to keep the fun going to the early hours, or an event closer to the station to help the public find it’s location without all the buses. When thinking of an event you can run for the Festival of Learning, just remember – why keep it on campus?
