British Science Week takes place this year from Friday 11 to Sunday 20 March, and this year the theme is ‘growth’.
Explore a career in climate change and sustainability
As you’ll see, on page 23 of the secondary schools’ activity pack our activity focuses on careers in climate change.
Did you know that as climate change is escalating, the demand for careers that are helping to fight it is also increasing? Many universities now offer degrees in environmental sciences and many career routes now include options to help protect the environment.
In the activity you’ll find out more about jobs in the environmental sector that you might want to explore further, from engineering in the renewable energy sector to sustainability management. Plus read our great new basic guide by Jen, Make Happen Outreach Assistant, on exploring a career in sustainability.
