Early Career Researchers - opportunity to contribute to 'Great Explanations' book, deadline 18 October
28 September 2021
Public Engagement - opportunity
Sense about Science have launched this opportunity for researchers to contribute to an anthology of the most pressing, fascinating and sometimes just plain overlooked topics from the far reaches of science.
Do you want to contribute to a book alongside scientists and science communicators such as Lord Martin Rees, Dr Kat Arney and Sir David Spiegelhalter? Mark Lorch (Professor of Science Communication at the University of Hull) has launched a crowdfunding project aimed at creating a popular science anthology. Mark has worked with Sense about Science to develop a special opportunity for Voice of Young Science members to contribute a chapter.
'Great Explanations' will be an anthology of the most pressing, fascinating and sometimes just plain overlooked topics from the far reaches of science, engineering and maths topped with a smattering of the philosophy and history of science. These are the subjects that working scientists are most passionate about, or interested in, or surprised by, in their own disciplines - the things they think curious readers really ought to know.
Deadline: Monday 18 October 2021, 17:00 BST.
