Scientist Next Door

Video call with a scientist to talk about the science that impacts our daily lives and share ideas and resources.

Scientist Next Door is an outreach programme created by Valentina Erastova [LINK: (University of Edinburgh), Basile Curchod, and Matteo Degiacomi (both Durham University). It was founded in March 2020 as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic and is designed to bring science to families across the UK and engage them in the science that impacts our daily lives.

Scientist Next Door works by holding group video calls connecting families with one of the team of over 50 scientists from across the UK!
