Congratulations to students of the 2021 PPL PWR Outreach workshops, Annie Clark, Wenxaun Cai, Felix Mildner and Georgia Predila, for their winning podcast about Truth and Misinformation!
PPL PWR Outreach workshops have been sharing the tools and expertise of the PPL PWR Community with new PhD students at the Centre for Doctoral Training in the Advanced Characterisation of Materials (CDT-ACM)* since 2019.
We teach students: project management skills; teamwork and team roles; ideation, design and modelling of their output (from idea to prototype); and presentation skills.
Students are supervised to work towards a real-world output such as delivering a lesson or workshop, or producing a blog, video or podcast. The students present their outputs to a panel of judges who pick a winner.
This year, the four teams created three podcasts and one blog over three months of workshops, on topics ranging from artificial intelligence to regenerative medicine, from truth and misinformation to climate science.
All teams produced high quality outputs but particular congratulations go to the winning Truth and Misinformation team.
Check out their podcast about misinformation, conspiracy theories and fake news, and how to debunk them here.
For winning outputs from previous years, visit our CDT Showroom.
