Call for exhibits and activities at Into The Blue
NERC offered a free-to-exhibit opportunity for researchers to have an exhibition stand or run public engagement activities as part of our Into The Blue showcase, which took place in Manchester during October half-term (25-29 October 2016). Visitors to the event were a broad public audience, primarily focused on families and young people.
The showcase comprised about 40 stands, as well as stage and discussion space, both inside and outside an aircraft hangar. Through the exhibition stands, talks, debates and discussions, the event engaged visitors with the wonders of the natural world and the process of doing research. The event was centred around the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) - external link research aircraft.

The closing date for applications was Friday 1 July 2016.
