Opportunities to get involved with public engagement and outreach

We're always looking for volunteers to help out with our activities at the major UK science festivals, our events around the country and our regional activities.

If you want to be notified of upcoming public engagement and outreach opportunities, sign up to the RSB Public Engagement Volunteering Opportunities mailing list. If you’re not a member or registered with our website, you will need to create a free mySociety account with your name and email address. You can then go to My Subscriptions to subscribe to the volunteer mailing list and a range of other free newsletters.

The RSB can be found at many of the UK's science festivals, providing opportunities for anyone interested in science to meet us, work with us, and find out more about us. This year we will be taking hands-on science biology activities to the following festivals and events. If you live near these events you can volunteer to help us by emailing your details to outreach@rsb.org.uk
