Engaging with young people forms part of the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) Science in Society programme. We provide free teaching resources for primary & secondary school science education, & information on school-scientist links. Our objective is to enthuse & inspire young people about science; empowering them as future citizens to participate in public dialogue about science & to pursue science-based careers. Our school-scientist links & teaching resources enable & encourage researchers to engage with young people, teachers & education professionals, stimulating discussion about the cutting edge research we fund. BBSRC are one of 7 Research Councils that work together as Research Councils UK. We are funded by the Government's Department for Business, Innovation & Skills & support around 1600 scientists & 2000 research students in universities & institutes across the UK.
