          Abstract

          In 2018, the British Science Association piloted a project that involved partnering with an activity provider and campsite in Ramsgate to determine whether affordable, accessible campsites near the seaside would be an effective location to reach audiences unengaged with science and engage them with food sustainability and eating insects. Results suggested that mostly unengaged audiences were present and that their attitude towards science improved after taking part. Future work should trial different activities and campsite partnerships across the UK, on a larger scale and at busier times of year.
