join us for our first virtual symposium for pupils in year 10 upwards

Genomics Futures: Student Symposium 2021

Wednesday 23 June 2021, 10am-3pm

In Year 10 or higher? Considering further study in biology or data science? Join us for our first virtual symposium to gain insight into the world of genomics and bioscience. 

Over the course of the day, you'll hear from scientists, technicians and data scientists from the Wellcome Genome Campus, take part in activities, get tips on applying to college, university or work, and hear about the cutting edge science that's been happening on the Campus. 

Who is it for?

This event is for students in Year 10 - Year 12 (or equivalents, students aged 15+). Teachers can book on for their whole class - to either broadcast the symposium for a whole class or for individual students to access via a computer classroom or personal laptops/devices, or sixth form students can book for themselves to attend during study periods.

Which schools are eligible?

We welcome secondary schools from across the UK to join us for this event. In the event that this event becomes over-subscribed, priority will be given to schools in our target areas and criteria (state schools in the East Midlands and East of England in an area of high deprivation, low social mobility or with a high percentage of pupil premium). 

How do I sign up?

Tickets for individual students and groups will be available through eventbrite shortly - a link will be added here when sign up is live. Make sure you're signed up to our Education Update newsletter to be the first to know when tickets are available. 

Early bird tickets will be available to some of our target schools. 

Will it be recorded/accessable after the date?

Yes - if you sign up for any session, you will have access to the recordings of all sessions to watch back up to two weeks after the event. Some sessions, such as the activity break-out sessions and AMA sessions, will be best attended live to fully take part.
