CHRISTMAS LECTURES Assistant at the Royal Insitution – helped to coordinate all the demonstrations and guests.
According to the Ri, “the CHRISTMAS LECTURES Assistant assists with preparations for the creation, development and implementation of the CHRISTMAS LECTURES. The role involves working with a very broad range of people including academic researchers, TV production staff, multi-media content developers, science communication professionals and an ‘assortment of kids, animals and unpredictable props’. ”
I focused on astrobiology in undergrad and just spent a year in Edinburgh studying Science Communication and Public Engagement. I’m a big fan of all things space.
