Where: Kimmeridge House, Talbot Campus
Alice is a Professor of Public Engagement in Science for the University of Birmingham and will be giving a 30 minute talk on her views of the importance of public engagement. Following this unique opportunity you will have the chance to hear from academics responsible for some of the best examples of public engagement from BU, including Paola Palma’s work with Marine Activity Days, and a chance to view a taster of the work being done by the Seen but Seldom Heard project. There will be further opportunities in our interactive exhibition space to see more of the fascinating work being done at BU. See the exciting activities run by the AimHigher team with local schools to encourage students to go to university who may never have thought they’d be able to. Colleagues from AECC will also be present talking about the work they do with their research as well as their work with Cafe Scientifique, a monthly event run in Cafe Boscanova, Boscombe, that brings science and technology to the general public. Register now to see all this and much much more! This is a one off event and not to be missed!
