- Sign up to our weekly newsletter to stay up to date with the latest iBiology videos and events. Encourage your friends and colleagues to sign-up as well!
- Tell people about iBiology. Give a short talk about iBiology using our template slides and script. You can use 5-10 minutes during a talk or give a short presentation to introduce people to iBiology, our mission and how they can use our resources. Contact us via email and we'll be happy to provide you with template slides, a script and additional information you can use.
iBiology wants to make science and scientists accessible to more people around the world. To further this goal we add subtitles in English and other languages to as many talks as possible. As an Ambassador you can help us transcribe or revise English subtitles or translate transcripts of English subtitles into languages other than English.
iBiology videos are frequently used for educational purposes, in the classroom and beyond. As an iBioAmbassador you can get involved in special projects to help us create educational resources using our talks and other materials. These special educational projects are not ongoing, so participation in them occurs in an as-needed basis.
