Explore your Universe: Reaching into Communities across the UK
ASDC is delighted to continue running our national physics and engineering programme, Explore Your Universe in partnership with STFC. For the past two years this programme has focused on reaching people who don't generally engage with science. In this phase of the programme, 40,000 children and adults have taken part from a range of communities including remote and rural areas, a prison, hospitals, schools and communities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that are high on the indices of multiple deprivation.
This adds to the 347,008 families, school children and adults who have taken part in the EYU physics and engineering shows and workshops to date, of which 45,852 met a scientist or engineer.
