Public Engagement, Outreach and Widening Participation

I am running a a science public engagement and outreach programme, entitled “It’s a matter of crystals”. As part of this project, I deliver workshops in schools, public libraries and at science events/fairs. The project “It’s a matter of crystals” aims to explain the importance of materials research, and particularly, the study of crystals, in daily life. I want to emphasise the fundamental research interest in the growth of single crystals of materials and to draw attention to the wide range of applications that crystals have in society and economy.
