Public engagement

The School of Experimental Psychology provides a variety of opportunities for members of the public to learn about the work we do.

Our outreach team run the Brain Box Challenge, a workshop on the brain designed to fit with Key Stage 2 in the primary school curriculum. This workshop can also be tailored to suit older pupils.

Prof Stephan Lewandowsky contributes articles to the online magazine The Conversation. This represents an interesting collaboration between scientists and journalists to bring exciting new discoveries to members of the public.

Research findings are presented at our regular Wednesday afternoon seminars, and at the Inaugural Lectures given by our newly appointed professors. Both are open to the public.

Following the success of his Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, Prof Bruce Hood has set up an open resource to allow members of the public to Meet Your Brain.

In addition to running our own events we also provide experts for sessions run by the @Bristol team. For more information on these sessions contact michael.peacock@at-bristol.org.uk
