Hear what experts do in the fascinating worlds of molecular modelling, coral reef research, and studying wildlife from space

Chaired by the winner of the RSB School Biology Teacher of the Year award 2024, attendees will hear from a panel of speakers who took part in the A-Z of the biosciences career shorts, and have the opportunity to put their questions to the panel to discover how their science really works. Inspire your students and help to motivate the next generation of bioscientists.
