We are running a range of projects with schools as part of the 2019 festival, including:

  • A project with five primary schools and University of Nottingham scientists looking at pathogens in tomato plants, funded by the British Plant Pathology Society
  • A project with up to 30 primary schools where pupils will gather data for a city-wide citizen science project about biodiversity and air quality using our ecoKits, funded by the University of Nottingham
  • A project with the Nottingham Children’s Hospital School, funded by the Royal College of Pathologists
  • A project with three primary schools involving neuroscience undergraduate students from the University of Nottingham
  • A Careers Day for secondary school pupils at BioCity
  • The Real Science in Schools Symposium showcasing the authentic scientific research being done by pupils in Nottingham

If you are interested in any of these projects, or want to talk about how we could work with your school, please get in touch: megan@ignitefutures.org.uk
