Queen Mary University of London is proud of the range and quality of the public engagement that takes place at our institution. You can view a wide range of QMUL projects online here, but we have created a series of project showcase documents below.
For more information about the projects, or about your own public engagement, you can contact the Centre for Public Engagement.
The Turtle Project
There are now only seven sea turtle species remaining in today’s world, all of which are threatened with extinction.
This project combines state-of-the-art technology with high level, hands-on, education to engage with local authorities and local communities to raise awareness of the fate of endangered marine turtles in Cape Verde.
Archive of the Now
The Archive of the Now is a digital and print collection of poetry which includes recordings of over 200 poets performing their own work.
The Archive supports emerging and established poets, and seeks out new readers and writers within the nonconformist British poetry tradition.
Physics can be a challenging subject to learn as many of its topics such as particle physics, nuclear radiation and cosmology are abstract in nature.
LEGO Physics seeks to help students learn difficult physics concepts by giving them the opportunity to physically construct what they study using LEGO bricks.
Warblr is a mobile app that automatically identifies birds by their song, while also gathering data for a citizen science initiative to map geolocated bird sounds.
Intended to widen interest in the subject, Warblr is intended to reach beyond dedicated birders to anyone who hears a bird singing and wonders what it is.
Airway Cells and Air Pollution
The Airway Cells and Air Pollution’s (ACAP) study investigated the impact of air pollution on immune cells within children’s lungs.
The project team carried out its sampling in primary and secondary schools across London whilst engaging the students through interactive activities and fun workshops.
