Outreach for Schools

Our outreach programme helps young people make career choices and introduce them to our profession

Reasons to get involved
Volunteering for outreach events is great on many levels. You get experience in science communication (good for STP competencies!), have an opportunity to share your passion for what you do, meet lots of nice people and have fun with it!

And you are helping us to fulfill our charitable objective as we communicate the benefit of physics and engineering in medicine to the public. 

Inclusiveness

We aim to translate our strategic value of inclusiveness into every aspect of our work, including outreach.  We prioritise events that foster social mobility and reaches groups from underrepresented background and we encourage our volunteers to do the same.

I'm a scientist get me out of here!
