Pop Up Science – a practical guide

Today The Curious Act has launched Pop Up Science, a free and practical guide to transforming empty shops into creative spaces for science engagement. The guide was written to disseminate learning from our two pilot pop up science shop projects funded by Wellcome (The Heart and Lung Repair Shop and The Heart and Lung Convenience Store). The guide also includes seven other case studies of pop up science shops from the UK, Europe and the US.

We hope the guide will be a useful resource to you if you are planning your own pop up science shop, or if you would just like to know more about this approach to science engagement.

We are very happy for the guide to be linked to from other websites and we welcome suggestions of other ways the guide could be usefully disseminated.

Best wishes,
