About the Programme

Our goal is to help schools inspire the scientists, engineers and teachers of tomorrow as well as provide teachers with the hook that will spark their pupils’ curiosity. We want to give pupils the confidence to explore, make mistakes and discuss their ideas. By sending volunteers into schools we aim to provide participants with a diverse and enthusiastic group of positive role models.

With our friendly Warwick student volunteers they learn what the main buildings on campus are and what they are used for. They can ask any questions they have about university and get to hear what life as a student is like at Warwick. Our campus days can easily be linked to your school curriculum as the pupils learn about how materials change states in Chemistry, Art and Engineering and explore the wildlife on our campus.
