Last year I joined the School of Physics and Astronomy’s first Outreach Team which was set up by Dr JC Denis, the School’s Outreach Officer.
For those wondering, outreach can be boiled down to taking science out of the labs and in front of the public. When I volunteered for the team, I went in with the intention of spreading the good word of physics to the next generation of potential scientists. By the end of the year, I had gained one of the most important skills of my academic career: the ability to tell people what I’m doing.
