Express your interest now in a unique training opportunity, combining human biology with public engagement.
In the Zone
‘In the Zone’ is a London 2012-inspired educational project by the Wellcome Trust. All UK schools have received an investigation kit to explore the vast capabilities of the human body, and an interactive exhibition is now touring the UK. Participants in the training will have the opportunity to participate in the interactive exhibition, as well as receiving an In the Zone box of their own.
Apply now to attend a half-day session covering public engagement in science and sport, aims of science communication and different approaches to demonstrating the In The Zone kits whilst busking.
We are working with the Science Junkies to deliver the training. Science Junkies is a science communication outfit that brings alive the science of sport and adventure, fronted by adventurer Huw James and BBC presenter Greg Foot.
