Outreach and Education

The Outreach & Education Forum will coordinate outreach activities and production of demonstrators and videos across institutions, at a local, regional, and national level.

Its aim is to share our passion for science and technology applications specifically in relation to metamaterials.

  • How can we build outreach around the metamaterials topic?
  • How do we reach our target audiences online and in person?
  • How can we coordinate effective use of demonstrators across the network?
  • How can we influence the talent pipeline support from school to undergraduate programmes?


Do you have ideas e.g., for demonstrators, cartoons/videos, picture competitions, and other tools to engage a wide range of audiences, from curious school children to seniors with metamaterials science, from undergrad students.

Join the Forum through the network sign-up form, and add your interests and suggestions for metamaterials-related outreach and education elements to our list of ideas.

All network members with an interest in outreach and education, regardless of their place of work and career stage, are welcome.
