As part of my job I explain Fusion and our work on the research on site to visiting groups from lots of schools and universities, and just this week I was out in a local school explaining power-stations and fusion. So YES I do and also visit universities quite regularly. I rather enjoy the chance of explaining what we are doing and how important it is for the future generations that a new and clean energy source is found before it is too late. Regards Robin.
Yes, last time I went to a school and took over a lesson to teach students about the “Role of an Engineer”. It’s a tough question to explain by standing and talking, so I designed a mini activity for the students to work on, which helped them sample what I do. I got some really interesting results too.
Yes, I am a STEM ambassador, that means I go into schools and talk about science, technology, engineering and maths and about my work. I also help on activities in schools that help make STEM subjects interesting to young people, like the K’nex challenge, schools science clubs, etc. I love being able to share a bit about what I do and see young people getting interested in science and engineering subjects and the opportunities they provide
