After a three year hiatus, we're delighted to announce the return of Schools' Day on 2nd March 2023.
At Schools' Day, students from schools all over Cambridgeshire and beyond gather at the Institute to discover more about our world-leading bioscience research. Led by Institute researchers, secondary and sixth-form students complete hands-on lab projects. Often using equipment not available within schools, Schools’ Day aims to enthuse, inspire and motivate students and provide insight into what life is really like in the lab.
Schools' Day is for students in Years 10-13. Typically, up to 5 students per school or sixth form may attend, although more places may be offered if capacity allows.
This year, for the first time, have established a Travel Fund to support schools for which the cost of attending would be prohibitive. Funds of up to £500 are available to a limited number of state-maintained schools. Priority will be assessed using the English Indices of Deprivation 2019.
Registration is now closed. To be notified directly about future schools events, please subscribe to our Teacher Mailing List. Registration for Schools' Day 2024 will open in October 2023.
