Online (Zoom)

Join the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) live online, and give your secondary school students the opportunity to meet a ZSL scientist via Zoom.  

Our early career scientists will describe their experiences working in conservation science, discussing topics such as the process of scientific investigation or how the decisions they've made (which subjects to study, what work experience is necessary) have helped to get them to this point.

A key component of these 30-minute sessions is the opportunity for your students to ask their own questions and ask what is important to them (whether that be careers advice, questions about conservation or whether fieldwork is as glamorous as it looks on TV!)

During the video call, we'll share photos from the field, maps and images, to help prompt questions from your students and visually engage them.

Join us from the comfort of your classroom or assembly hall or, if necessary (depending on your circumstances), individually from home.

You'll be sent details about our scientists before you meet them, giving you and your students the chance to find out more about their research and plan what you would like to ask. This will help you to get the most out of the session.  

This is an amazing opportunity to show your secondary students science in a real world context and explore careers in conservation science.

The sessions will be hosted on Zoom which has an automated live transcription feature. Please contact us if you have additional needs, so that we can try and help/adapt the session so that it is accessible for you and your students.

Cost and booking

The event is free to attend and intended for secondary school students (including home educated students). To book your place, please visit the ZSL event page.
