Call for ECRs and DPhil students working on bacteria - No Bell Prize at the Museum of Natural History
28 February 2019
Public Engagement - opportunity
As part of the Bacterial World exhibition programme, the Museum of Natural History are hosting an event called the No Bell Prize on Wednesday 15 May 2019 from 6.30-8pm, and they're inviting early career researchers and DPhil students who work on bacteria to participate.
You will have the opportunity to speak about your work for three minutes to a public audience and to a panel of friendly judges. However, there is a catch - you will be asked to speak for three minutes without using any scientific jargon. The panel will buzz for every word or term that they deem to be jargon.
It is a really fun, fast paced event that not only gives you the opportunity to communicate the work you do and practice public speaking, but that will also give our audience a chance to learn about all the amazing work on bacteria going on in the University.
If you are interested in participating or would like further information then please email Kathy Clough, Exhibitions Officer at the Museum of Natural History.
