What if…? wins national engagement award
A Science Outreach project, led by Lorraine Coghill, and involving Durham University researchers, pupils and staff from Greenfield Community College in Newton Aycliffe, and theatre makers Unfolding Theatre won a national award for public engagement. The collaborative project What if…? won the Engaging Young People award in the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement’s (NCCPE) Engage Competition.
These prestigious awards aimed to find and celebrate high quality public engagement with research and the judges selected What if…? from over 230 entries. The judges were impressed by the project’s commitment to placing young people at its very heart and truly involving them in scientific research. Winning the NCCPE award is a fantastic achievement given the high calibre of entries into the competition.
