Hands-On: Your PhD

Hands on your PhD

Event summary:

The Beach Hut Brigade invites you to an afternoon of getting “hands-on” with your PhD. PhDs are often theoretical, complex and conceptual: take these 90 minutes with us to explore how physical props might help you explain the work you do.

There will be a workshop complete with cake, the exhibits the Beach Hut Brigade takes to events, as well as drawing, discussion and modelling. And yes, you will be taking home Lego/play-dough models of your PhD. Expect a bit of madness, a bit of mayhem, a lot of creativity, and some stress-free PhD reflection time.

The Beach Hut Brigade is Southampton University’s coastal PhD public engagement group. They are almost a year old, and are hoping to show how much fun engaging with your PhD can be, and how easy!
