Ask Our Students

1hr | up to 300 students | Yr3-12
Invite Newcastle University students from a range of subject areas to talk to your students and answer their questions. This may be useful for A Level Biology students who aren't sure of the difference between studying Biology, Animal Science or Zoology or perhaps a chance for KS3 pupils to learn about the different types of engineering or even for a year 6 class to find out what real scientists do.
