Public Engagement

Students at public engagement event




Computing is at the heart of modern science, supporting changes that improve all of our lives. To highlight this vital role, the Scientific Computing Department (SCD) regularly engages with a variety of public audiences - including schools, students and families.​ A key part of the Public Engagement programme is to engage students, and importantly teachers, with computing.  There is an increased emphasis on coding and computing from government and within the national curriculum, and so we are looking at new ways of using STFC's computing work to enthuse students.
