Annual Conference -Dinner – AGM

Saturday – Sunday 16th -17th November 2019

Saturday 12-30 hrs. Conference Speakers:

Mae Dorricott.

Mae, 22, is interested in the avenue of scientific communication, an area she first encountered during her time in Plymouth when she worked at The National Marine Aquarium as a host. The task of bridging the gap between the latest science and the public and trying to generate dialogue is the area Mae is now most interested in pursuing, resulting in her current undertaking of a Masters in Scientific Communication. The opportunity provided by the OWUSS as the European Rolex Scholar is a phenomenal chance for Mae to try and capture a snapshot of what is out there, and help her achieve her dream of reconnecting others back to the sea.
