Horizon Talks

Workshop 6

By Dr. Edward Duca, University of Malta, Malta.

Throughout Europe, education is not meeting the needs of employers for STEM skills. The CREATIONS project, funded by the European Union, is developing creative approaches based on art for an engaging science classroom. Students involved in the arts are more likely to participate in science fairs, win awards, and excel academicaly. Their approach combines, the IBSE (Inquiry-Based Science Education) pedagological model, with RRI (Responsible Research & Innovation) values and the Arts. The project’s Greek Partners (Science View) will be delving into the features of the CREATIONS approach to aid the development of the activities. In Malta, a number of activities were developed by Univeristy of Malta staff and students, who then brought them to schools around the island. The workshop will involve participants developing their own creative activity that they can use in any setting—prepare to surprise yourself.

Workshop  7

Workshop 8

By Peter Brennan and Ricardo Valdés-Bango (PubhD Dublin)

A growing theme of public scientific engagement events centers itself in the pub, a warm and familiar venue, distinctly different to that of a traditional lecture hall. In these events, researchers present their research and share their expertise to the general public and researchers from different fields. Examples of these events include: Science on Tap and Pint of Science – annual science festivals in 175 cities in 9 countries that brings scientists to the pub and other public venues; PubhD – a monthly event in 25 locations in 7 countries, where Ph.D. students explain their work to non-specialists and the wider public audience in a pub. In this session, a panel of organizers, former pub presenters, and audience members will share their experience at such events and provide insights on the strengths, limitations and future challenges of this format of engaging the public with science.

Confirmed speakers:

Peter Brennan – PubhD Dublin, Dublin City University, Ireland
Ricardo Valdés-Bango Curell – PubhD Dublin, Dublin City University, Ireland
Billy McCarthy – PubhD Cork, Teagasc, Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland
Ivone Fachada – PubhD Bragança, Portugal
