Public Engagement Training
Throughout the year we run several events for local schools, such as Schools’ Science Day (during National Science Week) and 6th form conferences. The number of Institute scientists and PhD students working with teachers to develop projects, give talks and seminars, demonstrate laboratory techniques and host pupil visits to their laboratories is growing year on year.
We also occasionally host pupils on work experience placements, not just in laboratories, but in areas that support the work of the scientific community for example our bioinformatics group, the nursery and engineering services.
Each year the Institute hosts a small number of 6th formers holding summer bursaries from the Nuffield Foundation, either within Institute research laboratories or companies residing on the Babraham Research Campus. If you are interested in this scheme, please visit the Nuffield Foundation website for further details.
Dr Simon Rudge who has supervised several 6th form students and undergraduates in recent years explained, "This scheme is very useful, not only because it ensures that new ideas and experiments are explored in our laboratories, but I personally enjoy mentoring young scientists and providing them with an opportunity to develop their enthusiasm for research science."
