Lecture designed to inspire young people to study science
A University of Wolverhampton Associate Professor will be hosting a lecture designed to inspire young people to study science.
Dr Martin Khechara, Associate Professor for Engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) in the Faculty of Science and Engineering, will be giving the FREE lecture in the University’s Chancellor’s Hall on Tuesday 28th January 2020 from 5.00 pm until 6.30 pm.
Beyond Outreach: Inspirational Science Communication and Public Engagement in the Black Country, will be an interactive performance outlining the nature of science communication and public engagement, offering techniques for better engagement and how performance can be used as an inspiration tool to reach young learners from underserved communities.
Dr Khechara said: “Our aim is to make science less highbrow by taking it into the heart of our community and performing it in a way that people can easily understand.
“This lecture will give educators and anyone interested in teaching or talking about science, tips on how to best interact with their audience to inspire them to learn more about the subject and to hopefully keep learning.
“Everyone is welcome to join us but, in particular, it would be useful for teachers, lecturers or anyone involved in communicating on the topic of science and just presenting information in general.”
