Outreach is very important to me. I think it’s important to inspire the next generation of school children to become scientists.
Certainly the extra-cirricular highlight of my undergraduate life was the Astrodome, the Physics Department’s inflatable planetarium. We travel to local schools and hold on campus shows to share our passion for astronomy. I was with the Astrodome team from the start and now, as a postgraduate, I am charged with responsibilities of managing the dome for events such as BBC Stargazing live.
If you’d like the Astrodome to visit your school then get in contact with Dr Sadie Jones!
