I was selected to work as a press office volunteer during the British Science Festival. As an ex BSA media fellow I knew how things ran from a journalist’s perspective. My duties over the week were mainly to assist the BSA press office in setting up the press conferences, offering AV support in press conferences and supporting the journalists.
A bonus was that I got to attend – and tweet from – a number of sessions at the festival. I even wrote a guest blog post on one of the robotics sessions where I saw a robot play the drums to match another musician.
