Style of entries
Look at examples on the site for the general style. Keep your entries quite informal and avoid jargon and difficult specialist language.
You can see 'places' as they go about their daily lives. There is a historical aspect to this section to show how science and technology have shaped the city where you live.
Where science is done
A section to feature centres of scientific research and development in the city. This section can also feature people who do their science in the city or use science in the service of the city and its people today.
This section only features links to whole programmes of events.
Entries should be written to be understood by members of the general public. Our audience includes learners of all ages, teachers and members of the public.
Please let us have a digital image suitable for e-mailing or a web site. Click where shown and attach one or more images to the e-mail. Alternatively let us know of an image on a web site that you can give us permission to copy and use.
If you have no access to a digital camera, then photographic processing stores can now supply a CD with suitable images when you get your films developed. Scanning prints can also give good results.
The site can accept photographs in most standard formats (JPG, BMP, Pict).
If you cannot provide a digital image, please send prints of photographs to Cities of Science, Nuffield Curriculum Centre at 28 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3JS. We will return them if you include an addressed envelope.
