“One of the most accessible ways to engage in outreach… It’s flexible, enjoyable, and rewarding [and] makes you think about your work from a completely new perspective.” Luke Townsend, scientist

Help school students better understand how members of the Genetics Society have moved genetics beyond Mendel to being the cutting edge of research.

Take part in I’m a Scientist and connect online with school students to show them what it’s really like working in genetics research. You’ll engage with classes in fast-paced, instant messaging-style Chats, and answer their follow-up questions.

Sign up here: imascientist.org.uk/signup/c/gensoc by October 6.

No audio or video kit is required. Everything happens online. Join in at the times that suit you, with a suggested commitment of at least 1 hour per week across the 4-week activity.

Students need to connect with people who work across a wide range of genetics-related roles. You could be a technician, a researcher, an analyst, or manage lab facilities. Get involved.

The Genetics Zone is funded by the Genetics Society, the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics, and the Wellcome Sanger Institute.
