Four SEAHA students are joining the team of ‘Student Engagers’ at UCL Museums. Student Engagers are postgraduate research students at UCL who aim to broaden public engagement with research by sharing their knowledge and making connections between their own research and the collections at UCL.
Alexandra Bridarolli, Mark Kearney, Anna Pokorska and Cerys Jones will be at the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, Grant Museum of Zoology, & UCL Museum of Art talking to visitors and encouraging them to think about the collections in novel and varied ways.
At the Petrie Museum, Alexandra talks about why she thinks public engagement is important:
