Members of the MOYA team, Aoife Grant, Alice Ramsden , Angharad Stell, Julianne Fernandez, Neil Humpage, Stephane Bauguitte and Rachel Tunnicliffe, took their research out to educate and inspire young people and adults at Bristol’s Festival of Nature recently. The Festival of Nature, a free outdoor Science Festival attracted a record 15,000 people on the 8th and 9th of June this year.
Our ‘Discover your inner cow’ exhibit and activities attracted hundreds of children and adults where they enjoyed building greenhouse gas molecules, making cow masks, exploring the MOYA information cow, growing our ideas tree and guessing which animals burp the most methane! We had loads of interest in our research and people queued up to play our quizzes and find out how they could reduce their methane emissions. It felt great to get out there and engage with the public, sharing our research and getting the public’s take on what we do.
