First Group of Postgraduates Undergoes Science and Engineering Ambassador (SEA) Training October 05

This October, 25 postgraduate students from the School of Chemistry were trained as Science and Engineering Ambassadors (SEAs). This nationally run programme was organised through Bristol ChemLabS and carried out by Sandy Jack from SetPoint Gloucestershire. A second course is planned for February.

The scheme allows scientists, engineers and mathematicians to become more involved in the community/schools, improving public understanding of science. The expected outcome is to enthuse young people so that they positively consider science and engineering career possibilities. Science Ambassadors will be involved in supporting outreach activities involving school workshops and visits.
