Jeanette has volunteered for various organisations: the Goodrington Sea Shore Centre, outreach events at PML, MBA or Plymouth University including running a workshop for gifted eleven year olds to examine the mechanisms used by animals to move through water and sediment. She thoroughly enjoy communicating science and engaging with both children and adults though practical activities and presentations.
