VIA Award Craig Slattery

Congratulations to Craig Slattery on being awarded a Values in Action Award for his commitment to making science accessible and engaging for the general public through his outreach work in the UCD College of Science and elsewhere.

He is the chair of Midlands Science, a voluntary position in the not for profit company which works to create greater interest in STEM education and skills among students, teachers and members of the public in the counties of Laois, Offaly, Longford and Westmeath. Midland Science reaches over 16,000 people directly per annum and their work has been independently and positively evaluated and found to be impactful, creative and innovative. The initiative makes a particular effort in all projects to engage with those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, as they are the least likely to engage with STEM outreach.

Craig’s work is a wonderful example of the UCD objective to engage with the wider community, in particular, outside of Dublin. Midlands Science is an initiative that embodies inclusiveness, community, equality and provides services to local and national communities while helping attract an excellent and diverse cohort of students.
