FREE Science Summer School 2022, run at Edinburgh Zoo or the Highland Wildlife Park

Hi

Please see opportunity below for the Zoo Summer School.

The application process for our FREE Science Summer School 2022, run at Edinburgh Zoo or the Highland Wildlife Park, has begun. The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) is now accepting applications for this course that runs within the school summer holidays, and we hope you may share this exciting opportunity with interested students (current S4-S6) before the application deadline on March 7th 2022.

 This is a FREE week long course aimed at school students between the ages of 16-18 years who are pursuing a career in science. Run at Edinburgh Zoo or the Highland Wildlife Park over the summer and delivered by a host of zoo professionals including keepers and vets, this is an excellent opportunity for students to gain more experience in research and conservation, whilst adding to their CVs in a fun and immersive manner!

The Science Summer School runs multiple times throughout the summer. This year’s dates are:

Highland Wildlife Park: Weeks Beginning 11th July & 18th July 2022

Edinburgh Zoo: Weeks Beginning 1st August & 8th August 2022

Students wishing to apply should complete the application form found on the RZSS Science Summer School website before the application deadline on March 7th 2022.

If you have any questions I would be delighted to answer them, and if you can let any students that you feel could benefit from this free experience know, it would be incredibly helpful!
