The Society's Public Understanding of Entomology SIG aims to improve the outreach across the entomology sector

The aim of RES outreach is to promote and increase public understanding of entomology. The Society continues to increase the number and range of activities organised for public benefit. These activities help to improve the “diffusion of entomological science” and contribute to science education as a whole.
