Annual Outreach Activities
Lincoln's British Science Week
British Science Week is an annual 10-day national event celebrating all things science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. At the University of Lincoln, we used this opportunity to showcase our expertise in these subject areas and offer a range of inspiring and interactive activities. These activities aim to encourage young people to continue their studies in science subjects and consider Lincoln as a place to do this.
Scientists of the Year Awards
At Lincoln, an annual event is held to recognise our local areas young scientists. Lincolnshire Schools are invited to nominate their ‘Scientist of the Year’ from their Year 10 and Year 12 students. Awards are presented in biology, chemistry, physics and computer science with a certificate and where possible a prize given to the winning students during an evening of science held at the University of Lincoln.
STEM Christmas Lectures
Our STEM Christmas lectures aim to inspire the next generation of scientists and showcase Lincoln's expertise in a range of key STEM subjects. With a Christmas theme, the aspiration is to bring some fun into science with these interactive virtual sessions. The sessions currently remain virtual with the purpose being to give students from across the UK the opportunity to experience Lincoln from wherever they are based.
Within the College of Science, we offer a range of masterclasses available to support your students in deciding what they might like to study if they choose to undertake a degree. Our masterclasses aim to give school and college students an insight into university teaching, in particular giving them a taste of science at Lincoln. Masterclasses can be delivered live virtually, physically, or pre-recorded, depending on your preference and the current Government guidelines.
To allow school and college students to get a real taste of university life we offer campus visits where we encourage you to bring a group of prospective science students to Lincoln for the day. Campus visits usually include a welcome talk, followed by a workshop usually in one of our science labs, and a campus tour. Where possible, we also bring along some of our current students for your students to chat to. These events are tailored by your individual wants and needs so please get in touch to find out more.
While we have a range of standard activities available we are also keen to meet your and your student's individual needs. That's why we offer the opportunity to book bespoke activities that provide the opportunity to design a tailored experience that meet the needs of your student's interests or support the delivery of specific aspects within the A Level or BTEC syllabus. Work with us to find out how our staff and current students can support you and your student's, get in touch.
