Are you a scientist who enjoys talking about your work?

Would you relish the opportunity to showcase medical research in Manchester?

The Manchester Science Festival is on its way and offers scientists the ideal opportunity to engage with the public. Nowgen and the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry are organising a Meet the Scientist event for the festival and are looking for scientists with an interest in public engagement to join us.

We would need just a couple of hours of you time on either Friday 30 or Sat 31 October for a hands-on, informal event at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. Training in effective public engagement will be provided and Nowgen’s public programmes team will be available to offer their advice on how to help the public access your research in a meaningful way.

This annual festival is Manchester’s premier event for public engagement with science and engineering. It promotes both the region’s rich heritage of past scientific achievements and endeavours, whilst showcasing current innovative science, technology and engineering research and practice.If you are interested, please contact Emma Newall at emmaj.newall@cmft.nhs.uk.
