The Science Shop provides a point of contact between community groups and the University. It is part of the University’s Community Outreach programme and enables students from all disciplines to develop their research skills. Community groups submit research ideas to the Science Shop and Science Shop staff find students to carry out the research as part of their course work.
The Science Shop works with undergraduates and postgraduates right across the University who are carrying out research as part of their degree. This includes humanities, social sciences and law students as well as those studying more traditional science subjects.
A complete list of projects is available on the Science Shop website www.qub.ac.uk/scisho
If a student is not interested in any of the research ideas listed, but would still like to do research with one of the groups mentioned, the Science Shop may be able to support their research idea.
