Help keep students engaged with STEM!

Students are facing major disruption to their studies and innovative ways of ensuring students access valuable learning opportunities are needed. By signing up to take part you will have the opportunity to develop public engagement skills and gain a fresh perspective on your work. You will be involved in live text-based chat sessions with students and teachers and answer questions about science and working in STEM, helping to bring STEM subjects to life and inspire the next generation of environmental scientists.
