Over a six month period the researchers will be showcasing a variety of topics.
These will include astronomy, bilingualism, health, biomedical sciences, maths, and physics.

We are delighted to have such a great team of researchers dedicating their time to public engagement, and are looking forward to sharing their experiences with others who might be wondering how they can make their research connect to a wider audience
The Public Engagement Fellows were announced at the Edinburgh Beltane 2009 Annual Gathering.
