Training

At Science Made Simple we put our years of experience producing engaging shows, workshops and props to good use, supporting STEM professionals in their work to engage the public with science and engineering research.

We provide a wide range of training events and programmes for researchers in universities and industry, helping them to develop engaging public exhibitions and TED-style presentations, viral videos and hands-on activities that are accessible to audiences of all kinds.

If you want to engage the public with your research, we can help you get to grips with why, when, where, who and how. If you’re thinking about your research impact and facilitating dialogue with the public, we have a wealth of experience to share.

Take a look at our training products listed below. We can customise our material to suit you, and if you have your own ideas just ask and we can tell you more about what we can do to help.

“The most useful aspect of the course was how interactive it was – especially the ‘what to say’ and ‘how to say it’ parts. These parts really helped me to think about how to deliver difficult science topics at the right level for people to understand without losing the actual science”
