Maximising the Impact of your Research

Do you remember the first moment you decided to become a scientist?

Do you remember the first question you ever asked which required a scientific explanation? Perhaps it was "Why is the sky blue?" or "Where do babies come from?"

Communicating your research to non-specialists can give you a new perspective on the world, can challenge you to grow personally and professionally, can help you to keep learning through the power of awe and wonder. But most of all - it’s a lot of fun.

So become a scientist all over again – remember why you went into science, in the first place.
