Get Involved - Be Part of the Future of Science Today

The Durham University Science Outreach team provides inspirational, fun, hands-on science activities for schools and colleges throughout the North East. We aim to stimulate an interest in science and an understanding of how science is used in the modern world.

We need enthusiastic volunteers to work with us in schools and in the wider community.

Our volunteers:

  • Develop their communication and presentation skills in science
  • Have an interesting and exciting change from their normal work
  • Are a positive role model for future scientists
  • Encourage enthusiastic individuals into science as a career
  • Become aware of developments in school science
  • Raise the profile of science in schools
  • Share skills with teachers and young people
  • Communicate the importance of science in the modern world
  • Inspire confidence in science teaching and learning
  • Are ambassadors for their science
  • Show that science can be fun!

We want you to join us. Whether it's to take part in our Schools' Science Festival, to provide an activity for Celebrate Science or for a one-off drop in session in a school science club, we can use your skills. Full training is given.
