      Public Engagement is also sometimes called Science Communication. It means you create experiences (like events, activities and workshops) for the public. These experiences help people to learn more about the latest science happening and they ask questions or get involved themselves (called citizen science).

      The senior part is because I was promoted a couple of years ago. I had to write an application and do an interview. This is something you can do to show that you have more knowledge and experience.
