  • Raise public awareness of, and engagement with, contemporary physics.
  • Inspire and enthuse public audiences, especially those not previously interested in physics.
  • Reach adult and family audiences beyond the classroom.
  • Develop the science communication skills of individuals, particularly physicists.
