Science communication is essential both for inspiring the next generation of scientists and to engage and inform the wider community. If we are to have scientists in the future, children must be exposed to the idea that a career in the sciences is a lifetime adventure of exploration and discovery. This is achieved when scientists and communicators work together - sharing knowledge and enthusiasm. Many outreach activities and events are delivered by the Seagrass team.
