Would you like to take the stage and share your passion for science with over a thousand school children, young people, families and adults? We are looking for enthusiastic and engaging scientists to take the stage at Warwick Arts Centre in December 2022.
Combining culture, cycling and stained-glass window making (well, mock versions of stained-glass!), the team from Warwick Institute of Engagement supported by staff and students from a variety of subjects enabled over 300 people of all ages to take part in our activity on Saturday in Warwick and Sunday in Leamington Spa.

The Warwick Awards for Public and Community Engagement seek to recognise the vital contributions Warwick staff and students make in engaging the public – on an international and national level as well as crucially within our region and local communities – in our learning and discovery, with the goals of sharing and co-producing knowledge, strengthening the role we play in the region and showcasing the role Warwick plays nationally and internationally in making the world a better place. As such these awards mark an important step forward in the development of our Research and Knowledge Exchange cultures at Warwick; in the degree to which we recognise and reward those who seek to engage a wide varieties of publics and communities with their work; and in the ways in which we encourage our students as well as our staff to be part of that effort. I and the rest of the judging panel have been astounded and delighted by the strength of Public and Community engagement work displayed by the finalists this year, and offer our heartiest congratulations to the winners.
Prof Michael Scott, Director of WIE
