Susie is one of three HOPE for the Future Learning Officers responsible for bringing the HOPE collection to a diverse audience of young people and teachers. The team will develop and deliver an ambitious programme of public engagement activities both in and out of school. The programme aims to nurture and enthuse children’s interest and curiosity about natural sciences generally and British insects in particular.
