Public Outreach


The Education and Outreach programme operated by the Department provides support for teachers, students and the wider community. Our goal is to help everyone engage with science and to encourage more young people to take an interest in science and include it in their further studies.

We run a number of programmes ourselves, and also collaborate with a range of other exciting projects. You can find detailed information about Widening Participation and Outreach at the University of Leicester here.
