We are taking part in the STEMNET programme, which creates opportunities to inspire young
people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). In addition, we also take part in the Smarter UK programme, which aims to engage 13-16 year old school children in a discussion with neuroscientists on the ethics of cognitive enhancement.
Some of our lab members serve as STEM Ambassadors. As such they are an invaluable and free resource for teachers and schools. We offer our time voluntarily to enthuse and inspire students within schools about science. We can do this through a variety of activities such as clubs, careers talks, helping with school events, lessons and competitions, and much more. If you would like to know more please contact Ms Emily Boughton (Emily.Boughton@scienceoxford.com).
