After a two-year hiatus the out and about series returns! The world is opening up once more and we are able to get out and about to explore incredible places. In this edition Andy Lickley explores the Castle Museum in York. In this post he provides and shares the activities and exhibits that he discovered which helped visitors feel welcome and confident to take part in the museum’s experiences.
In the latest ‘Out and About’, Maxwell Hamilton took his niece to Eureka! The National Children’s Museum. He shares how they were made to feel welcome, and how the experience encouraged science talk and helped them link STEM to their everyday lives.
Each year the Royal Society hosts their Summer Science Exhibition. As part of the team who deliver training to researchers and STEM professionals involved in the programme, Scout Davies visited the exhibition looking for examples of good engagement practice.
