Host a Y12 student for a 1-2 week placement with in2science
8 March 2019
Public Engagement - opportunity
in2scienceUK creates opportunities for year 12 students from low-income backgrounds to progress to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) degrees and careers, so they can achieve their potential to become the next generation of innovators and pioneers. The core of the programme, and highlight for students, is a 1-2 week placement with a STEM professional in academia or industry. They could not offer the programme without you, the volunteers.
The first step involves filling out a form that will help in2science learn more about you and match you with students who will benefit most from a placement with you.
Students have previously been placed in Earth Sciences and Materials, and the programme has demonstrated some excellent impact. But don't take our word for it, you can hear it from the students' perspectives via these videos along with testimonials from researchers who have previously hosted students.
If you would like more information about the programme before signing up, please contact Stephen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are now sharing our strategic plan, which has a focus on demonstrating the value of PER, building capacity, particularly by supporting departments, and exploring where we can facilitate effective collaborations across the Division and with other partners.
