Our inspiring educational experiences share the scientific discoveries of EMBL with young learners aged 10-19 years and teachers in Europe and beyond.

Help us develop our virtual school visit programme

Dear ELLS supporters,

we would like to request your support to help us develop the virtual edition of the EMBL School Visit Programme.

EMBL has been offering on-site guided school visits to school groups from around the globe for many years.* This visitor programme has inspired, educated and sparked curiosity in hundreds of students.

However, we are well aware that not all schools have the capacity to organize such a visit to our campus in Heidelberg. It  is our hope that moving into the virtual realm will make this programme better accessible with an inclusive reach to any school group who wishes to meet our scientists, hear about the exciting research being done, discover options for careers in science or is simply curious about research organizations.

To ensure that we reach our goals we are reaching out to you to understand your needs and interests. We hope that your feedback through a short 4-minute survey will help us create a programme which would be tailored to fit your requirements and fulfill our goals. Your input is very valuable to us.

 If you would like to give us more detailed feedback, please send us an ‚úČ Email

Thank you for providing your feedback. We appreciate the time you have taken and will actively use your feedback to develop our Virtual School Visit Programme.

Warn wishes from Heidelberg,

Your ELLS team

*The following information is current as of August 2020: Due to the pandemic we have paused our on-site visit programme at least till the start of 2021.
