Part of the network-wide training events is also an outreach day planned and delivered by the DESIRE researchers themselves.
 A challenging exercise in event management and public engagement, the outreach day was an opportunity for our researchers to apply their knowledge and skills to engage with non-scientific audience and inspire high school students (16-17 years old) to consider science, design and technology higher education and careers.

The one-day outreach event was hosted on the 7th July 2011 at Lancaster University and involved over 70 students from Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School and Lancaster Royal Grammar School.
