Contribute to an event

For scientists, researchers and science communicators, engaging the public with science is hugely important and something they often want to do more of, but we know that it can be difficult to find the right events to get involved with. At Science Live we will match your interests and location to find the right opportunities for you.

You don’t need to be a professional to contribute to events as we also facilitate volunteering opportunities: volunteering is both worthwhile and great fun, and we want to support people to get involved. Without volunteers many local events would not be able to take place, so here at Science Live you can search for volunteering opportunities that match your interests and fit into your busy schedule.

Whatever contribution you want to make, simply create a profile and offered ad(s), and we will notify you when wanted ads match your criteria. There is no obligation to get involved—the choice is yours—but if you are interested you just need to contact the event organiser to take the opportunity forward. Likewise, if you have searched wanted ads and expressed interest in an event, it does not automatically mean you will be required – please wait for confirmation from the event organiser.

Once you have participated, the event will appear on your profile and you can begin building a portfolio of Science Live activities you have been involved with.
