In this module, students will identify a contemporary 'grand challenge' for science about which they are passionate, and will develop a student-led group project which addresses an aspect of their challenge. Group projects will develop an outcome in relation to their chosen grand challenge - for example: an application for grant funding, development of a public engagement video or website, or a conference presentation. Students will be expected to present their findings in a public forum, and to engage with the public or other relevant stakeholders dependent on the topic area.
