WACL seeks to engage with the public to provide teaching, learning and general information on atmospheric chemistry research.
One of the main exhibits is an aircraft cabin mock up from the FAAM (www.faam.ac.uk) research aircraft, where members of the public can sit in the "aircraft". They can hear audio from a real science flight through the aircraft headset and view video footage out of the aircraft windows, which include flying at 50ft and 30,000ft! This is generally exhibited at science festivals and exhibitions.
We encourage all staff and students to become STEM Ambassadors and are interested in working with schools to promote STEM subjects using engaging activities.
