WORKING WITH SCHOOLS

We see the value in engaging young people with current science. Through our public engagement programme we aim to support local schools by offering visits and open days that give your students a chance to meet and interact directly with our scientists. We are also building a range of online resources that you can use to inspire your students or enrich the school curriculum. For keen students wanting to discover more about biological research we offer a limited number of work experience placements each year.

Classroom Resources:

The PDF's below contain activities & experiments designed by our scientists that you can do in the classroom or at home.
