Can you remember what first sparked your interest in science? Science outreach aims to engage public interest by sharing our passion and enthusiasm through fun and engaging events. Tailoring these activities to a younger audience presents an interesting challenge for scientists: how do we communicate complex ideas in a digestible way?
This 1 hour seminar will present ChemGolf, a video game demonstrating the fundamental concept of atoms and molecules, which recently was displayed at the NI Science Festival Roadshows. We will discuss the development process of ChemGolf from conceptualisation to execution, and also hold a short discussion on presenting complex ideas to an audience of varying age and ability.
