Welcome to the Engagement Blog! This blog was created to allow Institute staff & students to share their stories and comments on public engagement events and activities as well as providing a space for our researchers to discuss scientific topics and about their life in the lab.
The views and opinions expressed here are those of the individual authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Babraham Institute.
Run as part of the visit by Generating Genius students as described in the previous blog, Oliver Burns from the Institute's Technical Services team describes the interactive tour he has developed to show visiting students how much work it takes to keep a research lab working safely.
Guest blogger Malcolm Moss explains how the Dutch Technasium approach recognises the demand for students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to ensure they can contribute and be happy as global citizens in the 21st century
In October, Juan Rodriguez-Molina, a postdoctoral researcher in the Casanueva Lab hosted a group of home-educated children at the Institute. Here he discusses how it went and what he learnt from the day.
