Dr Saeeda Bhatti, Honorary Lecturer within the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing, and Science Connects STEM Ambassador, was delighted to discuss a community engagement initiative with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, MSP for Gorbals.

Dr Bhatti recently organised the second “STEM in the Gorbals” event earlier this year, inviting local children to take part in a science writing and drawing competition. Entries were published in the 2nd edition of the STEM in the Gorbals “Adventures in Science” magazine.

Presented with a copy of the magazine, the First Minister was supportive of Dr Bhatti’s work and will record a podcast with some of the children inspired by this initiative later this year.
