Get Involved

NDORMS gets involved in a variety of events throughout the year for adults, schools and families.  Please see our list of upcoming events below for more information.

We also run work experience weeks for students aged 16 or over.  For more information please visit our work experience page.

If you work for NDORMS, then taking part in outreach and public engagement activities is a great chance to share your expertise and enthusiasm with the public as well as an opportunity to find out a bit more about what people know and feel about your area of research. Getting involved with public engagement is also an enjoyable way to improve your communication skills and a great asset for your CV. NDORMS takes part in a range of outreach activities throughout the year and the department has a library of activities and equipment available for staff to borrow for outreach events. If you are already involved with outreach work or would like to be please contact Natalie Ford
