With Burns Night celebrations happening this week up and down the country, I sat down with master’s student Megan Leishman to discuss her work with the organisation Science Ceilidh – a social enterprise working to support communities across a broad spectrum from science communication to wellbeing.
Megan describes herself as a 5th year Astrophysicist and fiddle player and is a member of the university ski club (she says she does “ski racing really really badly”!). I was keen to know how she got involved with Science Ceilidh and find out what she’s been up to!
Although the summer break has started for most university students, primary school children are still engaged in lots of online science experiments thanks to the Physics Outreach Team. We are indeed still running weekly STEM sessions with a primary school we have been working with continuously since last year.
