EMBL school visits

Please note, we are restructuring our school visits programme and are currently not offering any visits. Consider subscribing to our newsletter to be the first to learn about our new offerings coming soon.

Experiencing authentic life sciences environments is a key component of impactful science learning. The EMBL School Visits Programme offers inspirational, first-hand insights into cutting-edge life sciences research and connects young learners with international scientists working in the field.

The programme is offered in two versions: virtual visits comprise of interactive live sessions over 45-90 minutes; face-to-face Campus visits provide 2-3 hour tours to the EMBL laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany. The programme is open to school classes from Europe. Places are limited and must be booked in advance.
