The aim of this activity is to initiate collaboration between educational and non-educational agents, raise students’ awareness of science-related careers through meaningful interaction with experts, and enhance students’ interest in science through activities developed in an authentic context related to AMR.
The activity develops in two steps: (1) Meeting the experts in school and (2) Engaging in authentic activities at the experts’ facilities. It is important to note that aside from the relevant background of the experts (i.e., microbiologist, molecular biologist, biochemist, biotechnologist, geneticist), a set of criteria should be defined for their selection in terms of gender, ethnicity, religion and socioeconomic status in order to maximise inclusivity. Moreover, coordination meetings need to be arranged between the teachers and the experts before the interaction with the students.

Profile Cards: A card to fill in information about the experts.
A template for creating a profile card can be shared with the students before the meetings with the experts. During the meeting, students can use it as an interview protocol to take notes while interacting with the experts.
After the meeting the students use the card templates to create a collection of experts’ profiles.
Below you can find an example of a finished profile card.
