Science festivals are a fantastic and fun way to engage with the public about your research.
There are festivals and events taking place across the UK that you can get involved with – check out the UK Science Festivals Network to find one taking place near you.
Other events and initiatives that you can get involved in include:
You can get involved by contacting the organisers directly or linking up with engagement or outreach teams at your institution. They will be able to let you know about other local opportunities to get involved with public engagement.
Our Public Engagement team attends a variety of events across the UK and have opportunities for researchers to help at these events.
Opportunities are advertised through the Research Network, so make sure you are signed up to emails from your Centre to hear about how to get involved.
