Public Engagement

Our public engagement programme helps visitors connect with Earth and Environmental Sciences in fun, memorable and exciting ways. Through our ‘What’s On?’ Calendar, Science Showcases and Meet the Scientist Events, we’re always looking to provide opportunities to help our visitors understand the ways our planet works and where an interest or even career in science could take them.

If you work in Earth and Environmental Sciences research or industry and would be interested in delivering a Meet the Scientist session or Science Showcase Event, please get in touch with Conor Ellis, Science Engagement Officer
