Winchester Science Centre

Professional/research interests:
Winchester Science Centre has raised one million pounds to be the first science centre in Europe to have a zone dedicated to sound and Vibration for the next five years. Our UK-wide educational charity is looking for universities and companies to work in partnership with us to showcase their up-coming research through accessible exhibits which in turn builds Science Capital.

What are the benefits of joining our adventure?
• We can guarantee your exhibit will be interacted with over 200,000 people each year
• You will receive a strong evaluation report which highlights the impact of you research on the visitors.
• Exhibits will help inspire all students including priority widening participation groups and be highly accessible.
• Have the opportunity to move exhibits nationwide to project your research across the country, even at science festivals and conferences.

What happens next?
Let us be your pathway to impact, by working with Winchester Science Centre we can change attitudes and empower people of all backgrounds to spark their curiosity. Your research could inspire the next generation of scientists, convince people to make healthier choices about their lives and create a more scientifically literate society. Please drop us an email.

What would you like UKAN to do for you?
Be an advocacy to university and companies by telling them about our new project which is to inspire and inform students about a career in sound vibration and acoustics.

For UKAN to encourage researcher to talk to us before submitting grant proposals, so that we can look at the best way to have maximum impact on public engagement which is inline with REF 21 and very well evaluated.

How would you like to contribute to UKAN?
Increasing awareness of different careers in Sound, Vibration and Acoustics, also raising awareness of this areas to students.
