Event for Researchers: Cheltenham Science Festival

The Cheltenham Science Festival is looking for early career scientists or science professionals to share their passion for science in an outreach program for year 9 pupils called Careering Around.

Careering Around – careers guidance but not as you know it – gets KS3
& 4 pupils thinking about the benefits of qualifications in science,
technology, engineering and maths as they come face to face with
people working in science-related fields. Unlike a standard careers
fair, Careering Around involves interactive sessions based on a speed
dating format, making it lively, dynamic and definitely memorable!

The Festival is looking for enthusiastic people who have recently begun working in science-related fields to join them for one or two days between 7-8th and 12-14th November. They will be visiting schools in Gloucestershire and Somerset and working with Y9 pupils.

The schedule is as follows:
Wednesday 7th Nov – The Cotswold School, Bourton-on-the-Water and
Brimsham Green School, Yate
Thursday 8th Nov – Lakers School, Coleford and Ribston Hall School, Gloucester
Monday 12th Nov – The Castle School, Taunton (this school will host
and has invited other schools to attend).
Tuesday 13th Nov – Kingsmead Academy and West Somerset Community College
Wednesday 14th Nov – Millbrook Academy, Gloucester and Newent
Community School, Newent

The group will meet each morning (in Gloucester and or Bristol) and a minibus will take them to each school. The Science Festival can reimburse you for travel from your house/place of work to the meeting point.
