These live talks are hosted by a Science Communicator who will interview one of the Scientists who works at the Museum.

Your class will find out about what goes behind the scenes at the Museum from a real scientist who works with the collection.

This event is an ideal opportunity for students to meet and ask questions to a working scientist and discover how science works in a real-world setting. Discover more about the scientist’s research and how they use the Museum’s vast collections to answer big questions about the planet.

Students will also be able to ask about careers in science and hear about the scientist’s own experiences of science at school and beyond.

A range of different topics are covered depending on the scientist’s area of expertise.
