This week Amanda talks to Dr Fergus McAuliffe about his diverse career in science communication. Starting with his success winning the international FameLab competition, we explore what makes an impactful talk. Fergus then tells us about some of the exciting science and arts projects he’s done as part of iCrag science centre. From poetry about ‘bog bodies’, to geological sculptures, to choir music inspired from geoscience! Finally, we learn from his tv and radio work how to target different senses through different platforms.
