Resonate Logo

The Resonate programme is an opportunity for Warwick students and staff to participate in meaningful public engagement. We've created a structure of events for you to feed in to, so you don't need to worry about event logistics or finding an audience. Undergraduates, postgraduates, academics, technicians and professional services staff are all welcome to take part!

This page explains each event and how you can get involved. You can also get in touch to chat with one of the team.

Once you know (roughly!) what you want to do, then fill in our expression of interest form using the link below. We'll be in touch to talk to you about your plans as soon as possible.

The annual award-winning Warwick Christmas Lectures, from the Department of Physics, aim to inspire and engage the next generation of scientists. Each year, we fill the Warwick Arts Centre Foyer with exciting, hands on activities so visitors can get up-close with science - could you lead one of these activities?

Resonate Lates

Throughout the year

An audience looks towards a stage
For an adult audience, Resonate Lates is a series of evening talks and discussions delivered by University of Warwick staff and students around a whole variety of topics.

Held in an informal atmosphere, often with food and drink, it's a chance to start a conversation, and explore a range of topics with diverse audiences.

We hold Resonate Lates for each festival, and there's room in our programme to hold ad-hoc lates throughout the year too.
