KS4: Careers in Science

A classroom activity for Key Stage 4 students

In this activity you take the role of an interviewer or a scientist being interviewed for a research position, using your Cocoon visit to help you prepare.

Before your visit, look at the job description and decide which role you want to take on.

During your visit find out what scientists at the Natural History Museum do, and what kind of questions they try to answer. 

Back at school you will carry on your research before carrying out mock interviews in pairs or groups.
