This two year public engagement project will engage secondary school children with the issues of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) using a range of approaches to enable them to visualise the invisible world of AMR.
We have chosen this group because they are at long term risk from AMR, are future ‘antibiotic guardians’ and potentially future scientists. Through the engagement we aim to change their behaviour to improve public health outcomes, and inspire careers in science. The PE project will also produce a PE tool that can be used by others to engage school children and adults in this discussion, ensuring that the project has additional reach beyond our direct PE activities.
Over the course of the project we aim to engage students at all stages of secondary school education, from ages 11 - 18.
