An amazing experience - extremely rewarding to have the opportunity to explain to the wider public what our work is and why we are doing it.
I would highly recommend taking part in Summer Science, for the exposure it has given our research, and for the fantastic experience of connecting with visitors and getting direct feedback.
One of the most enjoyable and satisfying outreach opportunities that I have ever taken part in. The range of background of visitor is so wide that almost each encounter brings up something new.
It was a fantastic experience both in terms of the week itself but also for the skills portfolio that we developed as a team. As team leader I would now feel confident taking on big projects and in my own abilities to lead and direct.
