Do you think you could inspire the next generation of scientists? Do you want to improve your communication skills? Would you like to do something that makes a real difference? This course is for students who are passionate and enthusiastic about communicating their subject. You will be assigned to a local school and work with a teacher mentor in their classroom for 9 weeks. Your ultimate goal will be to create and deliver a lesson(s) or activity for the pupils in your class, leaving a memorable experience for them and hopefully inspiring a new generation of scientists. You will receive an induction into classroom work and have the chance to observe pupils and teachers before getting stuck in. This will be a hands-on course in a real work environment and ideal for anyone considering a possible career in education or science communication. We won't lie - it will be hard work, however, it will also be an experience like no other you will have had at Uni and hopefully a lot of fun! Acceptance by application and selection only.
