Scientist in your Classroom

We bring our scientists to you!

Celebrate Biology Week and join the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) online, from the comfort of your classroom or assembly hall, to give your secondary students the opportunity to meet a ZSL scientist.  

During this free interactive, online chat, ZSL scientists will share their experiences, discuss the process of scientific investigation and give your students the chance to ask their own questions.

This is an amazing opportunity to show your secondary students science in a real world context and explore careers in conservation science.  You’ll be sent details about our scientists before you meet them, giving you and your students the chance to find out more about their research and plan what you would like to ask. 

30 minute sessions are available, via Skype, from Monday 8th October until Friday 12th October 2018.  To book, please contact with your preferred date and time and the age-group of your students.  Sessions will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

A test call the week before is required to ensure good sound and viewing quality, and you will be sent a feedback form (to be completed immediately after the session) to help us evaluate the value of this free offer.  

Digital Outreach sessions can be used to extend learning after a zoo visit, or can be standalone sessions.

You will need the following in your classroom to be able to support a digital outreach session:
