The course takes place 5-8 November at We The Curious.

The Masterclass has been designed for those with little or no experience in the field of science communication and would be suitable for practising scientists wishing to enhance the public engagement element of their research, science graduates interested in science communication or those seeking a career change, and scientists/teachers of science seeking continuing professional development.

Topics for the Masterclasses

  • The historical and social contexts of science communication
  • Scientific literacy and public understanding
  • Publics and engagement
  • Face-to-face, media and online methods of engaging with the public 
  • Show, tell or pitch - During an interactive session, delegates will have an opportunity to present creative ideas, products and examples

Cost: £750.

This fee does not include travel, accommodation and subsistence which delegates need to arrange for themselves. 

A concessionary rate of £600 is applicable for students, the unemployed or those whose salary is less than £15,000 per annum.
