Reading Botany alumni: careers questionnaire
We are running a one-day Symposium in November for scientists, education and industry specialists on the pressing issue of enhancing the profile of plants in secondary school curricula.
We need to hear your experiences to show the breadth of plant-related employment to secondary school kids who are passionate about environmental issues.
