UCC Science for All 2016 - Science Communication Competition - OPEN FOR ENTRIES

 

Are you passionate about your research? Do you want to learn how to communicate your research to the general public?

 

FIRST PRIZE €500! 

UCC Science for all is a competition which encourages young scientists to communicate their research to the general public in an easily understandable manner. 

 

The competition, now in its 12th year,  is open to senior postgraduate students (not first years as you need some results to talk about!)  in UCC Colleges of Science Engineering & Food Science and Medicine & Health. 

 

All entrants will receive training in presentation skills and writing about science for the general public, which will prove invaluable for their careers. 

 

To book your place, please email  c.buckley@ucc.ie by Friday, 19th February
