STEM teachers and Careers Leaders are invited to spend a day at the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre, a neuroscience institute located with UCL in London, to learn about the breadth of roles and opportunities for young people in science.

You will meet with PhD students, postdocs, technicians, engineers, data scientists, microscopy experts and more to learn about their day-to-day roles. The day will also involve a workshop to give STEM teachers and Careers Leaders the time and support to work on resources to use in school with their students. 

You'll increase your knowledge of career pathways in neuroscience including PhDs and scientific support roles to enable more informed conversations with students.
