I’m a scientist (online) sessions. (For Key Stage 2 – Post-16)  

Extend your students' experience by following up your visit to Life with a live virtual session your classroom.   

Life is partnering with I'm a Scientist to bring a new virtual experience to classrooms. Your students will be connected with real people working in exciting STEM jobs in the North East through an energetic real-time text based chat.   

These sessions align with the Gatsby Good Careers Guidance Benchmarks, providing inspiring encounters with STEM employers across the region, allowing students to explore areas that interest them most, and linking curriculum learning to careers.   

All students will need to take part is a device with internet access. Life’s Explainers will be on hand to guide the students through the chat and ensure and safe and secure online experience. Speak to the bookings team to find out more.


Back in the classroom

Talk about the experience with your students. Encourage them to reflect on what they did, saw and learned. Students could create a display of their visit, write a class email to us about their day or discuss the various science jobs they found out about on their visit.
