Following on from the popular CHRISTMAS LECTURES on BBC this year, the Royal Institution is running a Family Fun Day on 15th February called Life Fantastic. The day is aimed at 6-14 year olds, who will be able to do all sorts of activities to learn about developmental biology and genetics.

Volunteers at this event, and other similar family days throughout the year, demonstrate science experiments to young people, children, and their families. It is a fantastic opportunity to get experience in science communication – presenting, explaining and demonstrating science in an informal educational setting.

They are looking for students from any science background who like the idea of communicating science to the public.

More information about this event can be found on our website:
