At the heart of any form of physics research and researcher is the desire, ingenuity, and creativity to solve problems. Often these problems are fundamental in all senses of the word: Fundamental because there are the foundations on which all other physics stands, fundamental because they are the simplest questions that we might ask. Honing our ability to think outside the box, to view a problem from a different perspective and to describe the problem to physicists with different backgrounds is vital for acquiring the optimal solution and to the propagation and growth of knowledge. In learning to do outreach well, we expand our horizons, broaden our perspectives and learn to ask the questions that strike to the very heart of a problem. During my seminar I will provide examples to support these claims and further illustrate how, when done wholeheartedly, outreach can positively impact on research.
