Biological Sciences

Video, audio, community and schools

If you are interested in our research, or in finding out more about an area of biology that interests you, you will find an opportunity here. There are lots of ways in which we engage with communities locally and nationally to discuss our science.

We are committed to sharing our knowledge, resources and skills with the public, and hope, in turn, to learn from the insight of the communities with which we engage.

Resources and events for public audiences and for schools include individual visits to local schools, open days and exhibitions, talks and other presentations. We contribute to many science and cultural festivals. Web-based information includes films and podcasts, along with downloadable educational publications.

As well as the projects described on these pages, many of our enthusiastic and creative staff and students organise smaller, and often surprisingly unconventional, activities discussing their science, such as stand-up comedy, book clubs, one-off presentations and talks, art exhibitions and more.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of us working with your group or organization, please get in touch with us.
