Yes that’s right! We are keeping the ‘public engagement’ ball rolling this Summer with our first ever pop-up shop in the heart of the city centre. This is going to be an incredible public engagement opportunity for UoB researchers and research students to showcase what they do to the public and to get across why this research is so interesting, valuable and important.
After all, research grants are often generated through public money, so it’s vital we are able to demonstrate how this funding is being put to good use! Sometimes simply developing an activity themed around a very basic concept in your subject area (which might seem far removed from your own research) is all it takes to deepen understanding of research and why studies into your field are so important. All disciplines are welcome to use this platform to run activities, whether you are from Arts, Sciences or Humanities! Don’t miss out and be as creative as you like! Want to perform a piece about Chemistry? Or sing a song about Geography? Run a workshop on Music Theory? It’s up to you! Learn more about how to get involved on the Think Corner section of the website HERE.
