Dr Lisa Jardine-Wright, University of Cambridge, UK

Universities worldwide are dedicated to raising the aspirations of young people and inspiring them to go on and study science at university. As an astrophysicist, inspiration was never in short supply, but one has to take care that if students aspire, they have the facility and are empowered to follow their new dream rather than be disappointed. In short, we need to reach out and engage but then we need to follow through with the academic support to develop the hard skills that they will need to reach their goals. I will discuss some examples of bringing outreach and empowerment together in widening participation and research.
