Students Communicating Science
This project involved the sharing of good practice in STEM communications between academics and students based at three universities - the University of Bath, the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England (UWE) - alongside input from the Institute of Physics and the Science Learning Centre South West. This collaboration facilitated the direct comparison of three different types of STEM communication models - paid, volunteer and accredited models.
Science Busking activities in public venues
The aim of the project was to:
Give STEM students in the South West the opportunity to learn the techniques of STEM communication, to have hands-on experience of being STEM communicators and, in certain circumstances, to obtain degree credit for doing so. Staff involved in the project will enhance their understanding of the benefits and challenges of three differing STEM communicator models - paid, volunteer and accredited models.
