Public Engagement - funding Public Engagement - opportunity
Back by popular demand, Oxford Sparks are offering one research group the chance to make an animation with them - for free.
You'll get the full Oxford Sparks treatment, which includes: a two minute animation produced on your research in the Oxford Sparks style, a teaching resources pack designed for secondary science teachers related to the animation, and promotion of the animation via social media channels (which could also include doing a Facebook live interview/event) – all fully managed according to their tried and tested process.
Last year’s competition saw two winners:
- Brooke Johnson, Earth Sciences: Ancient Mysteries in Marvellous Mud
- Keely Johnson, Hazel Hall-Roberts and John Davies, Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine: Discovering life-changing dementia treatments (animation available soon).
“[The] animation for the Meter project is an incredibly beautiful piece of work. Everybody loves it and it has been super successful in recruiting participants for the study.”
- Dr Phil Grunewald, Power People
“You were very patient in accommodating all our requests for changes and getting it just right for us. We are all very pleased with it! What I particularly appreciated was how generous you were with your time and expertise in working with my DPhil student and RA … I found the process very smooth and not at all burdensome!”
- Prof E.J. Milner-Gulland, Conserving Nature
Researchers whose work is science or science-related are eligible to apply – that means all researchers in MPLS and Medical Science Divisions, plus many researchers in Humanities and Social Sciences.
