Book a Biologist: Request form
In this FREE virtual experience, an expert guest speaker will engage with Bay Area middle or high school students for 45-60 minutes. We offer two main types of sessions:

โ€œ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—ฎ ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜โ€: This session is informal and conversational. The Biologist will give a 5- to 10-minute presentation about who they are, including a bit about their personal history, path into science, current work, and career goals. The rest of the session will be an open Q&A from students.

The rest of the session will be an open Q&A from students.

The biologists are primarily graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from the Stanford School of Medicine, mainly from the Genetics Department, who are interested in engaging with youth about science. In rare cases, you may be matched with a volunteer from a different institution or one who works at a biotech company. We currently have limited volunteers with ecology or environmental science expertise.

Please note that as sessions are dependent on Biologist availability, we are not able to accommodate all requests. Priority is given to underserved and local schools.
