Outreach and Public Engagement
Academic schools, departments and research centres associated with the College of SEFS offer a wide range of outreach and public engagement events throughout the year. These events are largely focused on, but not limited to, primary and secondary school children. The College of SEFS promotes the areas of STEM to the wider public, for several reasons:
- To increase awareness of STEM disciplines with the general public.
- To encourage people to move into the STEM sector for third level study and future STEM employment.
- To promote better informed and deeper engagement of STEM issues amongst the wider community.
The College of SEFS and its schools and departments work closely with UCC admissions, schools, industry partners and local STEM event organisations to promote STEM. Further information on these events, dates and people to contact are available from each school and department and research centre involved in the organisation of these events.
