Are you a science showoff or a genetics genius?

The University's Public Engagement Unit, based in the Department of Marketing & Communications, would like to highlight two events for researchers interested in undertaking public engagement activities.

Science Showoff

If you're looking for a fun way to communicate your research, then Science Showoff could be for you!

Originating in London, this is an open mic night for scientists, science communicators, science teachers, historians and philosophers of science, students, science popularisers and anyone else with something to show off about science.

The next event in Bristol is on Tuesday 25 September, 7pm at The Grain Barge.

All welcome; if you'd like to perform, sign up online.

Genetics & genomics card-game

If you work in the field of genetics and genomics research, you may be interested in a new card-based discussion activity (developed by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute) that helps students debate current issues in genetics and genomics.

Working with the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education and PATHWAY UK, free training sessions in the use of the resource are running up until Christmas.

For further details, please contact Louise Newby (Teaching Associate, Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge)
