Current opportunities for researchers
Applications are invited from researchers to undertake the following public engagement activities.
Science Now: web-conferencing - researchers wanted
The National Science Learning Centre (NSLC) runs an online activity to bring teachers into contact with researchers. They are currently looking for researchers to take part in a form of web-conferencing between March and May this year. You would receive £150 for being involved and be expected to do one, possibly two, one-hour 'web-conferences' with a group of teachers to explain more about a particular area of your work. This would probably involve a powerpoint presentation and you might even have some data to show that the teachers could then incorporate into their lessons.
If you are interested in taking part in this, or helping the NSLC develop their training for teachers to include more current research please get in touch with Poppy Leeder.
