Pathways Virtual Easter Science Club

When: Week Commencing 29th March – 9th April

Where: Online (Zoom)

Who: Year 10 and Year 11 students

Pathways are delivering a virtual, two-week Easter Science Club this March/April. This programme is designed to provide you with transferable skills and experiences you may have missed out on gaining this academic year, as well as providing you with innovative insights into the Sciences in further and higher education.

You will work on a practical Science project at home throughout the two-week programme. Alongside this, you will gain: an awareness of the broad range of career opportunities the Sciences can lead to, insights into taking a Science subject at further or higher education, and an overall knowledge enhancement of the subject area. You will also receive frequent information and guidance on university student life, such as student finance and budgeting, student support, and the benefits of engaging with extra-curricular activities.

In order for you to get an accurate reflection of student life, we will be utilising our student ambassadors from Science initiatives at our partnering Universities for participants to personally speak to and ask questions. We aim to provide you with this information through an online forum which you can refer to throughout the programme.

Throughout this programme we will be working towards completing a Bronze CREST award. Students who successfully attend all x6 live sessions and complete the practical project and workbook will receive their Bronze CREST award. This is a great award to include in college, university and job applications!

If you would like to book onto this activity, please fill out the application form on the right-hand side – ‘Book Now’

Deadline to apply – Wednesday 24th March at 5pm

Priority will be given to UniConnect eligible students in the event we become oversubscribed.


Feedback from previous students:

“The club was a very useful experience to develop new skills and learn new theories and formulas as well as to learn more about the roles of scientists and careers linked to science.”

“It was a good experience, even if it wasn’t face-to-face. There was still a massive opportunity to develop skills and understand science more”
