In addition, we also take part in several outreach programmes with the broader community to highlight the importance of basic research. These activities are aimed at all levels. For example, we run the crafts-based workshop for little children called ‘Build a Bug‘ in the family section of the Great Exhibition Road Festival. In addition, we are also committed to the scientific training of the next generation of researchers and we work closely with high-schools in the area. For instance, we have hosted several students interested in obtaining CREST awards.
