Native Scientist
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 organising workshops that bring together 4-5 scientists and 20-25 children who share a common heritage language/culture.


Communicate with all stakeholders. Recruit the scientists. Schedule the workshop. Coordinate the workshop.

Who will the volunteers be working with?
Native Scientist's founders and project managers, school teachers and pupils.
1-hour online group training plus 1-1 online training plus 1-1 support via email,

Time commitment

Coordinators usually spend 10-12 hours with the organisation of each workshop and 2 hours at the workshop.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working to keep you safe and supported whilst you volunteer.

You’ll never be out of pocket for volunteering through us – with in-London travel expenses to and from your volunteering guaranteed.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch with us at any time.
