Plymouth scientists set to showcase marine research at Plymouth Pirate weekend

This weekend local scientists involved in the Future of Our Seas project will be showcasing their research to a wide audience as part of this year’s Plymouth Pirate weekend. Situated in the heart of the activity on the Barbican, a full programme of activities will be delivered, with everything from live performances, to sea creature selfie-booths, suitable for the whole family and all completely free!

Since taking part in an intensive three day public engagement training workshop in March, the group of local scientists have been working hard, designing brand new activities to help them share their marine science with a wide audience. Covering a range of topics, including marine plastic pollution, ocean colour from satellite, discovering the deep sea and many more, why not visit the pop-up dome on the Barbican between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th to find out more.
