Springboard-Belong-Institute of Physics: community building through physicss

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course

Description

As Chair of Institute of Physics Ireland, I participated in a community-building event run through Springboard (https://springboard-opps.org/) and facilitated by Belong (cohesion an integration network, https://springboard-opps.org/our-purpose/). The event brought physicists together with a group of ~20 young people aged ~15-21 who are not in employment, education or training who are part of a Springboard (inclusive cross community project), to engage with them and highlight the role of physics in society and what being a physicist involves. The event involved personal discussions, activities and demonstrations and explanations from the physicists present.
