Outreach

We will develop community links, especially to schools through institution specific open days and tailored school visits. Drawing on BSBEC experience, we will maximise impact through engagement with events such as the "Big BangScience Fair" and University Open days . We will also seek to educate and inform policy makers and foster relationships with key stakeholders who can assist in developing and promoting C1NET activities and outputs.
Together with the Univesity of Nottingham, we have also deveopled an outreach game "Game of Fuels" - MORE DETAILS
