Online Webinar 16.00 – 17.00 GMT
We have a duty to explain and inform society about science because it is the biggest influence on culture today – just look at the impact of the COVID-19 vaccine. The killer question is, how are we going to engage with the public?
Roger Highfield will explore this question through the experiences of the Science Museum Group who engaged with over 5 million visitors in 2019/20 through objects, events, digitisation and by harnessing the power of social media.
