All group members are STEM ambassadors and we have a strong emphasis on working with local school children to engage and enthuse about our science, including designing and developing lesson plans for local primary and high school classes. Group members also take part in career sessions highlighting their individual journeys and provide guidance/advice on scientific career paths.


Due to the success of our ‘Guardians of the Gut’ exhibit, we have expanded our activities, and we’re currently generating a portfolio of complementary videos, schools’ workshops and teaching packs. Stay tuned for the official launch in mid-2020!
