Talk to US!

Talk to US! is a four year project funded by Research Councils UK (RCUK) which aims to develop engagement between Southampton University and local secondary schools, and motivate young people from a diversity of backgrounds to be excited about cutting-edge research and raise their aspirations for further study and future lives. Early career researchers have opportunities to develop their transferable skills through training and by working with school students. The initiative also aims to engage teachers in ways that have maximum impact on teaching quality and learning while encouraging and supporting teachers to take leading roles in the project development. The University of Southampton’s Education School is working with Bitterne Park School in Southampton and Wildern-Hounsdown Teaching School in Hampshire, which are recognised for their outstanding performance. The partnership will also encourage involvement of schools which seldom engage in university outreach activities. The project involves researchers from across the University in Education, Medicine, Engineering, Oceanography, Chemistry and Biological Sciences. It aims to:

  • provide professional development for teachers to help them build a research culture for themselves and their students,
  • provide professional development for university researchers on how best to engage with teenagers,
  • link research activities with the school curriculum,
  • encourage school students to share their experiences of carrying out research projects, through an end of year exhibition of their work.
