I have provided project management support for a number of public engagement festivals and events in London and Japan.


 

Science Museum Lates
SOUTH KENSINGTON, LONDON

Adults-only, after-hours theme nights that take place in the museum on the last Wednesday of every month.

During my time as Editor-in-Chief at I Science we had a presence at Lates, including a session entitled “tasting your genome”, whereby participants sampled a selection of genome-influenced foods.

Through this we created a wider discussion on diversity and what makes you “you” with some of the ~3,500 visitors.

 
 
 

THE GREAT EXHIBITION ROAD FESTIVAL
SOUTH KENSINGTON, LONDON

A celebration of curiosity that brings together science and the arts in the spirit of the Great Exhibition of 1851.

During my time as Editor-in-Chief at I Science we had a presence at the Festival and spin-off events throughout the year. This included working with London children to understand city air pollution.

Throughout the festival, many of the ~20,000 visitors stopped by our breakout area to talk about science and watch documentaries.

 
 
 

WORLD OCEANS DAY
OKINAWA, JAPAN

A global celebration on June 8 with hundreds of events around the world celebrating our ocean.

During my time as a fellow at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST), I was involved with the ECO Club. The group arranged beach cleans and plastic awareness campaigns.

World Oceans Day brought the island’s wider community together for music, food, and art - while learning about ocean activism.
