Science Outreach

The Outreach Programme based in UC's College of Science encourages young people to study science. The programme, established in 1999, enhances science education in secondary schools. It has a range of resources and activities and employs a full-time staff member to coordinate its activities.

The key aims of the programme are:

  • To encourage an appreciation of the pivotal place that science holds in modern society.
  • To describe how modern research has the potential to solve some of the big problems of our modern world.
  • To persuade young people that the study of science at UC is rewarding and worthwhile on a personal level as well as in a more altruistic sense.
  • To support the school science teaching community.
