Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones

Science communication activities

11 Feb 2010

We at the Society for Endocrinology believe that getting current ideas and new developments into the public eye is crucial to the future of scientific endeavour (see above for information on the upcoming SfE public website). A number of projects centred around public engagement with science are calling for volunteers from the scientific community to come forward and get involved:

Fresh Science - a UK Council of Graduate Education scheme that is looking for early career researchers to work online with a teachers to develop classroom resources using real research and data. (Further information)

I'm a scientist, get me out of here - a Wellcome Trust funded project where scientists compete for a £500 prize by presenting their work online to a class of secondary school children. (Further information)

The Big Bang - the UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair 2010 is looking for hundreds of volunteers in various positions to assist in this 3 day event in Manchester that features a number of science engagement shows such as Braniac Live and Bang Goes the Theory. (Further information)
