Scientists in Schools

Workshops and networking sessions

Workshops and networking sessions are run for scientists, mathematicians and teachers who are already in Scientists in Schools or Mathematicians in Schools partnerships. All events are free, but places are often limited, so be sure to reserve your place by contacting us.

If you're not already involved in either Scientists in Schools or Mathematicians in Schools, we invite you to attend one of our information sessions rather than these networking events.
