Ethnic minority and migrant pupils face multiple challenges when arriving to a new country and are two times more likely to underachieve in school than their non-migrant peers.Native Scientist is a non-profit organisation that connects migrant pupils with scientists to broaden pupils' horizons and promote scientific literacy and higher education.
You will be acting as a role-model for pupils who speak English as an additional language. By talking about your studies/work in your mother tongue/heritage language, you'll be promoting the integrated learning of science and language, in an inspiring and interactive environment.
Showcase your field of study/work in an engaging way to pupils. Training is available. You will be joined by other 2 or 3 scientists.
Who will the volunteers be working with?
Native Scientist's founders and project managers, school teachers and pupils.
1-hour online group training plus optional 1-1 support via email, training canvas and/or meeting.
Each workshop lasts 90 minutes. To attend the training and prepare the content for the workshop, it's at least another 120 minutes. It's common that volunteer students/scientists dedicate a minimum of 4-5 hours.
