Outreach Activities (SERIS)
SERIS regularly engages in outreach activities targeting non-scientific communities and schools to increase the awareness of solar energy research in Singapore. Besides organising laboratory tours and talks for visitors from Singapore and abroad, SERIS researchers also participate in sustainable energy exhibitions to demonstrate solar research capabilities at SERIS and to inform about the progress of solar energy research in Singapore. Below is a small collection of photos from selected outreach activities organised by SERIS in 2018. A full list of our outreach activities can be found in the Facts and Figures chapter of SERIS Annual Report 2018.
