What attracted you to the role of Physics Outreach Team volunteer?
As an exchange student, I was in search of extracurricular activities which would enable me to productively spend time outside of academia and explore my interest in physics outreach, as well as get to know local communities in Edinburgh. The Physics Outreach Team was perfect for fulfilling these goals. Both at my home institution and at The University of Edinburgh, it seems that applications for extracurricular activities tend to be fairly competitive. As the process to join the Physics outreach team was more accessible and relaxed – it was just a genuine get-to-know-your-interest-in-STEM-outreach exchange – this was a breath of fresh air.
