As part of the Biochemical Society's commitment to public engagement we attend a number of science festivals across the country. We take part in or run events aimed at the general public and young people.
We also want to support our members doing outreach. We fund Biochemical Society Scientific Outreach Grants, hold a Science Communication Competition and have created resources to help members plan and deliver science talks in schools. We also have our "What is biochemistry?" page which gives more information on this fascinating area of science.
Hands on activities
Hands-on activities are a great way to engage the public with biochemistry. Here you can find information about our hands on activities, successful activities carried out as part of our Scientific Outreach Grants and useful tips for running your own public engagement event.
Writing is a great way to communicate with your audience. Here we have a collection of winning Science Communication Competition articles, fact sheets and tips on how to successfully communicate with scientific writing.
Science talks in schools
Engaging young people with science is extremely important. Meeting and interacting with real life scientists not only inspires students to study biological sciences, it also helps them to understand how research can impact future developments. Here we have hints and tips to help you deliver science talks in schools.
