What Could You Do? Workshops, demonstrations and engaging talks all have a place in our programme and we are keen to give early career researchers a platform to development their public engagement experience. Everyone involved is supported by a festival volunteer, so it’s a great place to start developing your science communication skills.
Timescale: Bang Goes The Borders’ 2015 event was held on September 19th at St Mary’s School in Melrose.
