2021 Programme

Make a difference and inspire the pioneers of the future

In 2021 we’re looking to work with amazing researchers and STEM professionals who can share their insights and expertise with disadvantaged students through online mentoring and in-person visit days.

Mentor with us in summer 2021

We are looking for science, technology, engineering and maths researchers and professionals to mentor groups of up to three young people, through two online mentoring sessions and a one-day work placement (Covid-19 restrictions permitting).

It’s easy

Our experienced and friendly staff will provide you with all the training and guidance you need to become a fantastic mentor with us, and also boost your CV! The online and in-person sessions will take place in August, according to your availability.

It’s safe

We shortlist and interview disadvantaged students before matching them to you based on their interests. Mentoring sessions will be hosted as webinars through our secure online platform and in-person experiences will be hosted in accordance with the latest Covid-19 guidance.

It will make a difference

Through just a small time commitment to share your knowledge and experience, these young people can gain the knowledge and confidence needed to pursue a career in STEM.

The Programme in 2021

The 2021 In2scienceUK Programme will give our students access to exciting online and in-person opportunities, connecting Year 12 students from underrepresented backgrounds to volunteers from different fields within STEM. Supported by our team, volunteers will share their insights and knowledge through live webinars, small group mentoring sessions and one-day work placements throughout August.

The In2scienceUK team will work closely with its volunteers to develop and deliver engaging sessions, enabling students of all abilities to explore STEM beyond the classroom, develop key skills and boost their applications for further education. 

If you are a researcher, PhD student or professional in the STEM field we want you to share your experiences with underrepresented students through signing up as a mentor. Help our young people kickstart their pathway to a career in the sector, and achieve their potential in STEM.

I’m passionate about science and diversity, and supporting young people to fulfil their STEM potential is a great way to support both. I absolutely recommend In2scienceUK, it’s a great way to support the development of the UK’s next STEM generation”.
