About the Programme

Our goal is to help schools inspire the scientists, artists 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 new subjects and discuss their ideas. We offer in-school modules and campus visits led by our friendly Warwick students.

COVID-19 UPDATE All of our on-campus and in-school visits are suspended until further notice.

Check what we are offering for 2020/2021 below.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
