British Science Week 2016



British Science Week is always something I look forward to. It's a time when scientist and the wider community can get together and share knowledge and ideas. I suppose it's only fitting that my first 'science' post is during #BSW16. In previous years, I participated in public engagement events which were always enjoyable and a good learning experience. 

This year, I don't have much planned, except tomorrow I'll be presenting a wee poster containing some of my review findings in my institution's graduate school conference (which I'll probably live Tweet, so keep an eye out). It'll focus mainly on the benefits and drawbacks of using a narrative synthesis - I *might* put up a PDF of this after the conference, we'll see! I didn't plan this to coincide with this wonderful week of all things science but I'm glad it does!

If you're interested in #BSW2016, I've come up with a list of things you can participate in all around England:

Citizen Science: all things bat-related, wherever you are
Heroes of Neurons: all things brain-related, City University London
Bristol Science Film Festival: as it says on the tin, Bristol
#BSW16 comes to Manchester: various events, University of Manchester

Very keen to enjoy all things science for the rest of the week!

Hungry for more,
